The robber entered Honolulu Jewelry on 2250 Honolulu Ave. at about 11:45 a.m. wearing what appeared to be a FedEx uniform and carrying a package in his arms, said Glendale police Sgt. Tim Oswandel.

The man then brandished a handgun and struck the business owner in the face a couple of times with the gun before taking jewelry and fleeing, Oswandel told the Glendale News-Press.

No customers were in the store at the time of the alleged robbery, but witnesses said they saw the man drive off in a light-colored Volkswagen Jetta.
