Police are searching for two men who robbed a gold-purchasing business in New Jersey.

An employee of NJ Gold Buyers in Ocean Township told police that the two men entered the store at 780 West Park Ave. on Saturday afternoon and inquired about pawning a gold necklace. Police said one of the men then revealed a handgun and demanded cash and jewelry.

There were no other employees or customers in the store at the time and no one was injured.

Police said the men fled the store with an undetermined amount of cash and jewelry.

One of the robbers is described as being in his mid 40s, six feet tall, with a medium build, wearing a dark baseball cap, sunglasses, a flannel shirt and dark pants. He was armed with a silver revolver-style handgun.

His accomplice is in his mid 20s, approximately six feet tall, with a medium build, wearing a baseball cap, sunglasses and a white football jersey.

Police said the two men were spotted leaving the store's parking lot driving a blue Toyota Prius, heading southbound on State Highway 35.

The robbers are believed to have a strong connection to Staten Island, police said.

Anyone with information about the robbery should contact Detective James Loizos at 732-531-1800 or Detective Michael Clancy at the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office Major Crimes at 732-431-7160 ext. 3736.
