An employee was struck during the robbery of a jewelry store in Madison, WI.

Two men wearing masks entered Jewelers Workshop on Atwood Avenue just after 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, WKOW-TV reports.

An employee was hit during a brief altercation that ensued, police said. The suspects took a countertop jewelry display case and left.

“In over 50 years of us being in business, this is the first time something like this has happened. Nobody was hurt, no weapons were drawn, and thankfully there’s no damage to my business,” Jason Braden, owner of the store, told WKOW.

An employee said the suspects drove away in a silver sedan. The car had tinted windows and did not have a license plate.

The Madison Police Department continues to investigate the crime.

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
