GARDEN GROVE, Calif. — Police are seeking the public's help in finding five men suspected of attempting to rob a jewelry store who fled when the owner fired two shots at them.
Officers about 5:30 p.m. Sunday were sent to investigate reports of an armed robbery at Continental Jewelry, 12032 Brookhurst St., Garden Grove police Lt. Jeff Nightengale said.
Officers learned a white Ford SUV backed up to the front of the business, and five men wearing masks and gloves entered the store, Nightengale said. Two of the men with handguns pointed them at the employees and a customer. The other men carried pillowcases and demanded money, he said.
