Police in Binh Duong Province are hunting two armed suspects in a 13-second gold shop heist in which they robbed between 20 and 30 ounces of jewelries on Wednesday evening.
Ngo Trieu Ngan, the owner of Kim Nguyet shop, said the two men, armed with a a hand gun and an axe, parked their motorbike outside and entered the shop at a round 7 p.m. They did not wear mask, but were raincoats as it was raining.
Ngan's wife, her mother, a customer and a guard were in the shop on the ground floor of the house, while Ngan himself was on the first floor.
While one robber pointed the gun at the people present, the other smashed the glass cabinet and took the jewelries, most of them gold rings. The duo then fled the scene on their bike.
Ngan's wife's mother said the suspects were about 30 years old or younger and had dark skin. 
Recording from the shop's security camera showed the robbery took place in just 13 seconds.
The lost jewelries are estimated to be worth between VND670 million and VND1 billion (US$31,600-47,200) according to current prices.
Police said the heist might have been planned ahead and the robbers took advantage of the rain to carry it out.
The shop usually has two guards, but one of them was running errands at the time of the robbery.
