A “significant amount of diamonds” were reported stolen during a street robbery Thursday night in Pittsburgh, county emergency dispatchers told city police.

There were no reports of injuries in the holdup that dispatchers said occurred at 9:36 p.m. in the 300 block of Fort Duquesne Boulevard.

A diamond salesman or broker told police that he was robbed by three men wearing black hooded sweatshirts, officers said. At least one of the robbers had a knife.

The three fled in a black van with sliding doors, dispatchers told police.
