Rockford police are searching for two suspects in an armed robbery Thursday night.

It happened at Norma's Jewelry at 3829 east State Street. Police say a man went in the store and was looking at gold bracelets. When the clerk put one on him he grabbed several others and ran from the store. Employees chased him outside. That's when the man pulled a knife.

The suspects are described as two black males. One is about 5'8", 235 pounds with curly hair. He was wearing a white shirt and black pants. The other is about 5'8" 165 pounds wearing similar clothing.

They were last seen in a beige four-door car with a temporary plate.
