10 Oct

Police are hunting for a gang who fled on mopeds after a smash-and-grab raid at a high-end jewellers in central London.

Officers believe six culprits were involved in the raid at Mappin & Webb in Regent Street at around 7.20pm on Monday.

Three suspects are believed to have smashed display cabinets to escape with a high-value haul, after a hammer, axe and bats were used to break in to the store.

Three accomplices waited outside on revved-up scooters throughout the raid, police said.

The group – two on each moped – fled the scene in three separate directions.

One pair fled in the direction of Oxford Street before their scooter was involved in a collision with a pedestrian. The female pedestrian was not seriously injured and did not require hospital treatment.
