Appeal following 'smash and grab' robbery in Victoria
11 March 2014
H Stain Ltd, Victoria Street, SW1.
Flying Squad detectives are appealing for witnesses and information following a 'smash and grab' robbery in Victoria this afternoon, Tuesday 11 March.
Police were called shortly before 13:00hrs to a number reports of a robbery at H Stain jewellers on Victoria Street, SW1.
At this early stage it is understood that four suspects – two on a moped and two on a motorcycle – pulled up at the shop.
The pillion passengers – armed with axes and sledgehammers – smashed the glass windows and reached in to grab items on display. At this early stage it is not known what, if anything, was taken.
As the suspects attempted to leave the scene a member of the public wrestled the rider off the moped and held onto him until police arrived.
This rider, a man aged 18, was arrested on suspicion of robbery and taken into custody at a central London police station.
The pillion passenger from the moped fled on foot and into Lower Grosvenor Place. There the suspect hailed a Black Cab taxi outside the Robin Hotel, near the junction with Buckingham Palace Road, and left the scene.
The motorcycle rider and pillion passenger fled the scene. The motorcycle – a green coloured Triumph – was found abandoned in Eaton Square. Again, it is believed the two suspects then hailed a Black Taxi cab near Eccleston Mews and left the scene.
At this early stage it is believed that the suspects who hailed the Black Cabs would have done so not long after 13:00hrs and officers are particularly keen to hear from the taxi drivers who made these pick ups.
Officers are also keen to hear from anyone who witnessed the robbery, or anyone who saw or heard anything they feel may be connected to the robbery, either prior to it or after.
There are no detailed suspect descriptions at this early stage, other than they are all believed to be male and had been wearing helmets and motorcycle clothing.
Any witnesses or anyone that could assist police are asked call on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
