Authorities are searching for a trio of suspects behind a smash-and-grab robbery of a jewelry store at Sawgrass Mills in Sunrise.
The robbery happened the night of April 27 at the Pollack Jewelers store inside the mall.
"I've heard of grab and runs and things like this but nothing ever this violent," said Steven Pollack, who has owned the store for more than 20 years.
Authorities said a woman pepper-sprayed two employees as two men shattered a display counter and stole multiple watches.
"It's affected my life, my business," Pollack said. "It's been hard to sleep at night."
The suspects fled the scene in a silver four-door sedan.
"Coming to work, I'm scared, both of my employees that got pepper-sprayed, they're too scared to come to work," Pollack said. "So it's been very traumatic."
A reward of up to $5,000 is being offered for information leading to the arrest of the suspects.
Anyone with info is asked to call Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
