March 06, 1997|By Jill Hudson | Jill Hudson,SUN STAFF

Two men escaped with a number of pieces of jewelry from a store in Owen Brown village Tuesday afternoon after assaulting an employee, Howard County police reported yesterday.

An employee of Mai's Jewelry store in the 9400 block of Snowden River Parkway let two men into the store through an electrically locked door about 3: 25 p.m. Tuesday, a police report said.

Police said that when the employee bent down to get a piece of jewelry from a case, the men pushed the sales clerk to the floor, took an unspecified number of pieces of jewelry from the display cases and ran out of the store.

No one was harmed. Police found a large knife in the parking lot outside the store, but they did not know if it had been used by the robbers.
