Daytona Beach Police are looking for two suspects after the robbery of a jewelry store Saturday afternoon. Reports on the Police Department website say two black males entered the Showcase Jewelry store at 131 South Nova Road around 1:30 Saturday afternoon. The two partners working at the store told police that the men pulled out handguns and one covered his face with mask. The store partners say one of the men then jumped over the counter and started fighting with one of the partners, and was trying to pistol-whip him about the head. The other suspect ransacked the store, and then both fled. Police say the handguns turned out to be pellet/bb guns, and both guns were recovered at the scene.

The second store partner told police the two suspects ran to the back of the store and one suspect was seen using a cinder block to break out the window of a silver Pontiac, which was possibly at the car wash north of the store. Police say they later found the unoccupied vehicle in the 500 block of South Caroline Street. Police say the store partners report around $3000 in jewelry taken in the robbery. Neither partner said they were hurt in the incident.

Daytona Beach Police canvassed the area for the suspects while other officers secured the crime scenes at the store and the car wash, during a steady rain early Saturday afternoon. Police say one suspect was described as a black male, around 20 to 24 years old, 5-6 to 5-8 in height with a slim build, and wearing a dark jacket and light pants with the pockets out. The second suspect was described as a black male, around 20 to 24 years old with a slim build and wearing a grey jacket with dark pants and a dark beanie.
