Police are investigating the armed robbery of a jewellery store in Ashmore this afternoon.
Around 3pm, three men in a blue Holden Commodore stopped in front of the Cotlew Street business.
Two masked men, armed with guns and a hammer exited the vehicle.
One man entered the store and made demands for jewellery, while the second man held people outside at gunpoint.
The first man smashed display cabinets, before striking the female attendant in the face with his gun. She suffered minor facial injuries.
The men fled in the Commodore, which was located abandoned nearby.
The three men remain outstanding and anyone who may see them is urged not to approach them.
