An electronics and video game store in the Northern Village Shopping Center was robbed late Tuesday.

Investigators describe the theft at Disc Replay, 3009 N. National Road, as a “smash and grab.”

Shortly before the store’s 9 p.m. closing time, two suspects wearing dark-colored jackets entered the store, Columbus Police Department spokesman Lt. Matt Harris said.

The robbers, who wore masks and hoods, broke a display case before grabbing laptop computers and other electronics, he said.

Although employees were inside the store at the time, none of them were harmed, Harris said.

After leaving the business, the suspects were seen fleeing the area in a gray or green Jeep Cherokee, he said.

Investigators on Wednesday were attempting to track down surveillance video from the store and nearby businesses, Harris said.

For now, police are not even sure of the gender of the two suspects, he said.
