The group walked into the Bentley store at 834 N. Rush St. about 12:15 p.m. Saturday, according to a police report.

The four—two men and two women—checked out a display of expensive watches in a glass cabinet, then one of the men pulled the glass panels apart at the edges, according to an alert from police.

The two men then grabbed several watches out of the cabinet while the women provided cover and acted as lookouts, police said.
