Little Rock police talk to witnesses after Cecil's Fine Jewelry, located at 10720 N. Rodney Parham Road, was robbed Wednesday morning.

Authorities say they have arrested suspects in the armed robbery of a Little Rock jewelry store Thursday morning.

Little Rock Police Department Lt. Sidney Allen said the Cecil's Fine Jewelry store at 10720 N. Rodney Parham Road was robbed by three men about 10:15 a.m. and that "all suspects" were arrested shortly before noon at 4 Rich Smith Drive.

Allen later identified one of the suspects as 18-year-old Demetrius Curtis. The other two suspects, who are 17 and 16, were not immediately identified. All three will be charged with aggravated robbery, Allen said.

Police said initially that it appeared there were four men who were wearing masks. Allen said at the scene there were only three robbers and investigators were waiting to review surveillance video before confirming whether they were masked.

Allen said the robbers were armed with guns and they got away with an unknown amount of jewelry. They were last seen running from the store toward a nearby Whole Foods, but it wasn't clear if they got into a vehicle.

Allen said investigators would be on scene for some time talking to employees who were in the store. "They're of course all shook up," Allen said, noting it wasn't clear if customers were inside too.

The robbery comes after four bank robberies so far this week in Little Rock.

'll always say and believe we need to bring back the good old PEA FARM work these young thugs from daylight to dark six days a week, and if one so much as looks at a guard wrong he'll receive the business end of a black snake whip across his back. i can almost guarantee he won't want to go back to his evil ways for a long time.
