Authorities were searching for several armed bandits who raided a jewelry store early Saturday morning, police said.

The robbery took place at 12:30 a.m. in the 200 block of South Beverly Drive, not far from Rodeo Drive.

It is not clear how much the men escaped with, said Sgt. Jay Kim of the Beverly Hills Police Department.

The robbers entered the jewelry store and approached a man in the shop, police said.

They forced him to open two safes filled with jewelry and watches, police said.

The men fled before police arrived. The victim was shaken but not hurt.
