HIALEAH, Fla. – Newly obtained surveillance video shows a jewelry store robber attacking a woman who was trying to enter the travel agency where she works.

Hialeah police said it appears that the man, who is described as a Hispanic man with dreadlocks, was trying to grab the woman's phone so she could not call 911.

Police said the robbery was reported about 9 a.m. Sept. 3 at Ariel's Jewelry at 2474 W. 60th St.

Hialeah police spokesman Carl Zogby said the masked thieves broke through the drywall partition of a travel agency next door to the jewelry store.

Two women who had just opened the jewelry store were tied up during the robbery, but were otherwise uninjured.

Zogby said the third woman was attacked as the robbery was in progress.

The thieves left the store with an undisclosed amount of jewelry.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
