Two people were tied up during an armed robbery at a jewelry store Friday afternoon in the North Side Lincoln Park neighborhood.

Three robbers targeted Holtzmann’s Jewelry Store at 2304 N. Clark St., according to published reports.

About 1:12 p.m., two males and a female entered the store and pulled weapons, then ordered two people into the basement where they were constrained, police News Affairs Officer Stacey Cooper said.

The suspects ran out of the store with stolen items, but authorities have not yet determined how much they took.
