Plaza jewelry store robbed as owner attacked

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -

Police say two men with hammers robbed a jewelry store on the Country Club Plaza, despite the efforts of the store's owner to stop them.

Investigators say the men came into Vinca Jewelry Sunday afternoon and smashed the displays before taking some of the jewelry.

Owner Simon Zouein says he fought with one of the men for several minutes and eventually ran out of the store. He suffered minor injuries.

Police say the two men escaped in a maroon Dodge Neon with a broken passenger-side window.

Vinca Jewelry was the scene of a million-dollar robbery in 2010 when thieves cut into the building during the night. That robbery was never solved.
