Jewelry Shop Robbed

Four armed young men who were speaking with a “Caucasus accent,” according to witnesses, robbed a jewelry store in northern Moscow on Monday, taking valuables worth 5 million rubles ($161,000), a law enforcement source told Interfax.

The assailants at gunpoint forced the guard and the clerks in the Yashma Zoloto store on Khimkinsky Bulvar to lay on the floor during the robbery. Police were on the lookout for the attackers, acting on facial descriptions provided by the shop’s staff.
