NAGO, Norway — A Norwegian jewelry store owner says she was “shocked” to learn that two men broke into her shop with a large amount of jewelry, including a diamond necklace, while she was working, and took her personal belongings.
The man who entered the shop Thursday afternoon said he had gone there to buy some diamonds when he noticed a man wearing a mask.
He was wearing a white suit and a mask, and he had a “huge amount of jewels,” said Martine Høyseberg, who said she saw the man at the counter.
Høyselberg said she opened the door to see the two men in white coats and gloves.
She told them to leave, but one of them grabbed her purse and ran out of the store.
“I said ‘who are you?’ and he just said ‘I’m the manager of this store,'” she said.
The men were seen walking back to the store, Høysberg said, and she saw them grab a large bag of jewelry and leave.
The jewelry store manager said they also took two pairs of her sunglasses.
The police have been contacted, and Høylsberg said the man is a resident of the northern city of Nørrebro.
He is described as white, about 30 to 40 years old, and between 5 feet 9 inches to 6 feet tall, wearing a dark gray or black suit and dark pants.
The police said the men did not have a weapon.
A statement released by the Nørebro police said they received several complaints from the community.
“We received several phone calls from people concerned about this crime and want to assure you that we have thoroughly investigated the matter and are taking appropriate actions,” the statement said.
Höyselheim said she hopes to have a better understanding of the man’s motives soon.
