Video shows four suspects walk into the store. The first suspect smashes the front jewelry case with a hammer, and at that point a store employee starts attacking one of the robbery suspects when another employee joins in kicking and swinging. A third employee is seen joining in on the attack with a stool.

The employees were able to fight off the would-be robbers; nothing was stolen.

There were no injuries reported.

No suspect information was immediately available.
