Palm Bay police continue to search for two men in a gold store robbery.

PALM BAY, Fla. - Palm Bay police are on the alert after two masked men robbed a gold dealer on Tuesday, grabbing the clerk and forcing her to turn over the store's cash.

The robbery happened about 5 p.m. at the Orlando Gold Buyers store at 1465 Georgia St., just off of Malabar Road.

Police said the two men did not indicate they had any weapons before storming the store. 

"They went in wearing ski masks and dark clothing. They grabbed the clerk and forced her to give them money. She wasn't hurt but was shaken up," Palm Bay police Lt. Jim Richmond told Local 6 News partner Florida Today.  "They also took her phone so she was unable to call police."

Both men then fled the store.

The clerk was not seriously injured.

Police used a police dog to search for the men, but they were not located.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 321-952-3456.
