A smash and grab robbery caused panic at a San Jose mall Monday evening.

Eastridge Mall was packed with holiday shoppers when a suspect reportedly smashed a glass case at Valliani Jewelers, right next to where Santa Claus was greeting children.

The Macy's store was locked down for a short time but it has since reopened.

Police say no shots were fired. They are reviewing surveillance video of the suspect, who is described as a male who was wearing a partial mask.
