Glendale police have released a dramatic video showing a gang of robbers using axes and hammers to rob a jewelry store on Monday.

Police have detained a man and two women in connection with the robbery, which occurred about 1 p.m. at Glendale's Jewelry Mart in the 200 block of North Brand Boulevard.

Surveillance video of the incident released by Glendale police on Tuesday showed at least six people busting jewelry cases open while others scooped merchandise into open bags. "It's just pure intimidation," Sgt. Tom Lorenz said of the group's robbery tactics. "I don't think anybody is going to get in their way."
