A jewelry store located inside The Hub in Hillcrest was robbed by a group wielding guns on Monday evening.

Bert Levi Family Jewelers, located at 1050 University Ave., was hit at about 5:30 pm according to San Diego police.

One suspect held the clerk at gunpoint while two others smashed two display cases and grabbed an as-yet-determined amount of merchandise.

The gang fled the scene towards University Avenue and reportedly jumped into a champagne colored vehicle.

The only description police can provide is that there were three males all wearing dark clothing and masks 

No one was physically hurt in the crime and San Diego Police's robbery division are investigating the incident.
