INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - People working on Massachusetts Avenue are on alert after a brazen armed robbery in broad daylight.

It happened at Global Gifts in the 400 block of Massachusetts Avenue downtown just after 4 p.m. Thursday.

A man with a gun demanded money from the clerk while at least one customer was in the store. The bold robber got away with cell phones, jewelry and cash.

"We would not want anyone to get robbed, but I was disappointed that they picked on a non-profit fair trade store because we are trying to do something good," said Kim Johnson.

Global Gifts mainly sells handmade products by artists from underdeveloped countries around the world.
