SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – Police are investigating a smash-and-grab robbery that occurred at a jewelry store near San Francisco’s Union Square on Monday evening, a police spokesman said.

The robbery happened at about 5:15 p.m. when a masked man walked into a store in the 400 block of Sutter Street, shattered a display case with a tire iron, took diamonds and fled, police Officer Albie Esparza said.

The thief said nothing to the employee and no one was injured, he said.

The suspect is described as a man in his 20s who was wearing a black hoodie, sunglasses, a white mask, dark pants and gloves.

No arrests had been made in the case as of Tuesday morning.
