Two men, one armed with a small handgun, robbed a jewelry store in Marley Station Friday night, escaping with at least 20 diamond and gold rings worth up to $30,000, Anne Arundel County police said yesterday.

About 9:15 p.m., a man asked the 21-year-old store manager at Zales Jewelry about some rings, police said. A second man then walked in and tried to grab some jewelry by reaching across the display case.

Police said a brief struggle ensued between the man and the manager, who tried to shut the case.

One robber pulled out a small handgun he had hidden under a pamphlet and ordered store employees not to move, police said.

At least 20 men's gold and diamond rings, worth $20,000 to $30,000, were reported stolen.

The robbers ran from the store and out of the mall through a nearby door, disappearing in a parking lot, police said.

One suspect is described as a black male with a dark complexion between 5 feet 8 and 5 feet 10 inches tall. He was in his 20s, unshaven, and wearing a black Raiders jacket and cap. He was armed with an unknown caliber handgun.

The second suspect is described as a black male between 5 feet 6 and 5 feet 8 inches tall who was wearing a shiny blue and green jacket and a multicolored fisherman's hat.
