WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. – Police have released descriptions of the three suspects in the Tourneau jewelry store smash-and-grab robbery in The Westchester Mall on Sunday .

All three are described as black males in their late 20s or early 30s. Det. Lt. Eric Fischer described the appearance of each suspect:

The first has a thin build and shaggy beard and was wearing dark pants and shirt and a baseball hat.

The second subject is 5-foot, 11-inches, 240 pounds with scraggly facial hair. He was wearing khaki pants, a dark shirt and a Yankees baseball hat.

The third subject is about 5-foot 7-inches, about 140 pounds and was wearing a white sweatshirt. Police believe he is the one that had a struggle with security guard.

The struggle sent the security guard, who had drawn his gun, through a glass window from inside the store out into the mall, and all three men escaped. No one else was injured, Fischer said.

Police are working with the store to get all of the video surveillance footage, but no photos of the suspects have been released.

If you have any information on the suspects call Fischer at 914-422-6223 or the general detectives division number at 914-422-6200.

Police and a SWAT team responded to the Westchester Mall Sunday morning on a report of an active shooter situation. They quickly realized none of the suspects had guns and police continued the investigation.

The three men entered Tourneau on Level 2 of the mall around 11:30 a.m. and used hammers to smash the glass cases and take several expensive watches.

Det. Lt. Eric Fischer said they do not believe any of the suspects had a gun.
