A Covina jewelry story was robbed Friday afternoon by two men, one of whom was dressed as a woman and wearing a flowery dress, police said.

The two men were buzzed into Legacy Jewelers, 115 N. Citrus Ave., shortly before 1 p.m., police said.

Once inside the store, which had no other customers at the time, they pulled guns, tied up the owners and made off with an undisclosed amount of loot, police said.

The owners freed themselves, ran outside and contacted a Covina policeman on a walking beat. Officers searched the downtown area Friday afternoon, but could find no one.
