      Two Toledo men are behind bars after police say they robbed a West Toledo jewelry store Tuesday afternoon.

      Authorities say Venice T. Small, 21, and Davon R. Bryant, 20, entered the Antypas Brothers Jewelry store, 2350 W. Laskey, around 4:50 p.m. with guns in hand. The pair demanded cash and jewelry from two employees inside the store. One employee was held in handcuffs while the duo searched the store for cash and money.

      When police arrived, Small and Bryant were still inside the store. They tried to flee once they noticed a police presence. Officers pursued the pair on foot before apprehending them and recovering all stolen merchandise.

      Both suspects had outstanding warrants for unrelated crimes. They have both been charged with aggravated robbery and have been booked into the Lucas County Jail.
