FLEMINGTON - Police are still looking for the five men responsible for the violent hold up of a Flemington jewelry store.

Employees believe the suspects may have been there before. Three weeks ago, a group of men looked around, then left without saying a word.

The staff at Roman Jewelers asked News 12 New Jersey not to use their names because the suspects are still at large, but gave frightening details about their ordeal on Sunday.

Surveillance cameras captured the suspects as they entered the store with five customers and six employees inside.

"He put his knee on my back and put the gun to my head," one employee said. "And told me to put my hands behind my back."

Two workers were tied up during the incident and everyone else was ordered to the floor. The suspects were in the store for less than five minutes and got away with hundreds of thousands of dollars in jewelry and watches.

Community members have shown their support for the store by dropping off flowers and food.
