Two masked men robbed a jewelry store in Fairfax during the midday hours on Wednesday.

It happened about 12:40 p.m. inside House of Watches at 2505 Concord Pike.

Two men entered the store with their arms raised, implying they had guns under the sleeves of their clothes, police said.

The suspects used a hammer to shatter four display cases and they grabbed the watches and jewelry held inside.

Both men then fled. No one was injured.
