PROVO -- Provo police are looking for two men they say bound three jewelry store employees with duct tape during a robbery.

Authorities responded to Losee Jewelry on North University Parkway about 7:20 p.m. Monday. Employees say two men walked into the store and asked to see some jewelry before showing handguns and threatening employees.

The workers say tape was put over their hands, mouths and eyes. The men reportedly stayed inside the store for about 45 minutes.

Victims were able to free themselves and call police.

The suspects are described as men in their mid-30s, standing about 5 feet 10 inches. Witnesses say both were wearing puffy jackets and speaking a foreign language.

Witnesses say the suspects drove away in a black Jeep Wrangler that belonged to an employee.
