Jewelry store owner assaulted during robbery in NW OKC Thursday


The owner of a jewelry store in northwest Oklahoma City was pistol-whipped with his own gun during a robbery Thursday afternoon, police said.

Police responded to the reported robbery of Higgins Jewelers, in the 12100 block of Warwick Drive, about 5:40 p.m. Investigators determined that two black males had entered the store earlier Thursday and acted like they were shopping for rings, said Sgt. Robbie Robertson.

The two males returned shortly after 5:30 p.m. and found two guns in the store which they used to pistol-whip the owner and bust jewelry cases open. They were last seen fleeing in a silver Infiniti q45 with damage to the car’s body.

Robertson said the robbers took the guns and an assortment of jewelry from the store.

The owner was not seriously injured and was not taken to a hospital after the robbery.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 235-7300.
