As the investigation into the armed robbery of Helzberg Diamonds in Oak Brook continues, police on Sunday released surveillance video of the two suspects.

The men, both wearing ski masks, entered the jewelry store, located at Oak Brook Promenade on Butterfield Road, with a gun and a baseball bat. While one suspect threatened employees with the gun, the other smashed a glass display case with the bat.

The two grabbed jewelry from the case before they fled northbound toward Butterfield Road.

One offender was wearing a purple hooded sweatshirt, black jacket, blue jeans and tan boots. The other was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, black jacket, yellow gloves, blue jeans and black shoes. 

Anyone with any information should contact the Oak Brook Police Department at (630) 368-8700, or email crimetips@oak-brook.org.
