BROOKFIELD (WITI) — Brookfield police are seeking suspects responsible for an armed robbery that occurred at Powers Goldsmith Jewelry store on W. Capitol Drive.

It happened around 12:30 Wednesday afternoon.

Police say two suspects entered the store, both armed with guns, and attempted to break into a display case containing jewelry. However, the suspects were unable to gain access to the jewelry case, and left the store within one minute of entering.

Police say one suspect was armed with a handgun, and another suspect was armed with a rifle, similar to an AR-15 with a collapsible stock.

Police say both suspects appeared to be white men.

Both suspects appear to have walked to the business from a strip mall to the west on the south side of Capitol Dr. and left on foot in that same direction.

Police say one suspect appeared to have been wearing dark pants, a red Wisconsin hooded sweatshirt, white and dark tennis shoes with lime green laces, sunglasses, and was armed with a rifle.

The other suspect appeared to have been wearing a sky blue hooded sweatshirt with white draw-strings, green striped scarf, black baseball hat with a large green alligator, possible Lacoste brand, dark pants, black hi-top shoes, wearing a grey and orange backpack.

The suspects walked east along the sidewalk on the south side of Capitol Dr. from the area of the strip mall to the west.  It is very likely passing motorists may have seen the suspects.

Anyone with any information is asked to call the City of Brookfield PD at 262-787-3702.
