Armed Robbers Point Gun at Baby During Jewel Heist in Florida

August 26, 2011

Authorities in Broward County are looking for three gunmen who took about $1 million in jewelry and cash from a Hollywood jewelry store.

Hollywood police said Wednesday the three suspects fled in a black, newer model SUV driven by a fourth person. The robbery happened Tuesday morning while customers were shopping at Koosh Jewelers.

Police spokesman Norris Redding says employees and customers were ordered to the floor. While one suspect forced employees to open safes, the others grabbed merchandise from the store.

The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports one suspect pointed a handgun at an infant in a stroller and threatened to kill the child if their demands were not met.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call Hollywood Police at 954-967-4411.
