A moped gang has been caught on CCTV raiding Boodles jewellery store in Knightsbridge at around 10.40am yesterday (16 August).
The gang of six, who were said to be armed with sledgehammers and a machete, smashed one of the display windows at the jewellery store before fleeing the scene on three mopeds.
They were seen carrying bags away with them, thought to be filled with goods from the store which stocks high-end gems worth thousands of pounds.
The value of the stolen goods is not yet known and no arrests have been made.
A Scotland Yard spokesperson said: “Police are investigating after the robbery of a jewellers in Chelsea. Police were called at 10.37am to reports of a robbery at a jewellers at Basil Street at junction with Sloane Street.
“A number of suspects had arrived on motor scooters, entered the store and then used hammers to smash their way through counter displays.
“The robbers removed property from the displays and then made off on the bikes.”
