Fink's Jewelers in North Hills was robbed Saturday evening just before 6:30 p.m., police say.

According to authorities, a man walked in wearing a ski mask and armed with a handgun.

Police said the store was open with one customer inside as well as employees, but no one was harmed.

CCBI investigators were seen inside Fink's taking pictures and talking with employees. Outside, the store was blocked off as crime tape greeted patrons enjoying a Saturday night out at the popular, upscale shopping center.

As investigators worked, North Hills security closed off one entrance to the center and diverted traffic.

The suspect is described as a black man around 6 feet tall weighing 160 pounds.
