Unfortunately, the Jimmy Choo store in Bond Street has become the latest target of smash-and-grab robbers attacking luxury stores in the West End.
The store was raided on Tuesday night earlier this week, with the thieves escaping with £40,000-worth of handbags, but seemed to have left the shoes untouched.
“Police are investigating following a smash and grab at a commercial premises in New Bond Street at approx 23:35 yesterday evening, Tuesday 12 July,” said a Met spokesperson to Vogue UK.
“Officers were called after four suspects were seen driving up to the store on two bikes. They smashed the glass frontage and then the two pillion passengers proceeded to force their way into the store and made off with a quantity of handbags. The suspects headed off down New Bond Street and reports suggest they were later spotted in the vicinity of Portland Place and Park Crescent.”
The Westminster Crime Squad are currently investigating the horrific Jimmy Choo raid, and have not yet confirmed an official link to similar recent crimes that took place at Anya Hindmarch and D&G stores.
