Woman thwarts jewelry store robbery attempt

State Police are on the lookout for five men who tried to rob an area jewelry store.

The suspects tried to enter into Helzberg Diamonds in the Concord Square Shopping Center as a clerk was closing up Tuesday night.

The employee was able to shut and lock the doors before they could get in.

One of the suspects flashed a gun at the 71 year old woman through the glass.

The victim ran to the back of the store and called police.

The suspects continued to try to break in for a time before taking off on foot towards Concord Pike.
