One man smashed a display case at a Towson Town Center jewelry store with a sledgehammer yesterday afternoon, and a second man grabbed several expensive watches, Baltimore County police said.

The robbery occurred about 1:45 p.m. at Radcliffe Jewelers on the second floor of the mall.

The men ran through the the mall into the parking garage. Police said they fled in an older model gray Oldsmobile Cutlass with Pennsylvania tags beginning with the letters ATS. They were last seen driving north on Dulaney Valley Road.

Police were waiting for store officials to complete an inventory of the stolen merchandise to determine the value of the jewelry.

Radcliffe managers declined to comment yesterday.

In July 1993, a similar robbery occurred at Littman Jewelers in the mall. Robbers in that incident used hammers to smash display cases, police said.

The men in yesterday's robbery were described as black, in their mid-20s and between 6 feet and 6 feet 3. One man weighed 180 pounds and the second man about 210 pounds. One man wore dark clothing and the second man wore white clothing, police said.
