The Edmonton Police Service is seeking tips related to a jewelry store robbery and assault that took place in central Edmonton earlier this week.

At approximately 3:15 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 6, 2021, Downtown Division officers were called to the report of a robbery at a jeweler in the area of 115 Street and 100 Avenue.

It was reported to police that a lone male entered the business, produced a firearm, assaulted a male employee and took an undisclosed amount of jewelry. The male then reportedly fled the scene on foot.
