Police release CCTV footage showing three suspects walking away from the store in full public view
Police have released CCTV footage of three male suspects they would like to trace in connection with a raid on a jewellery store in east London, which took place in full view of the public in the street.
CCTV footage shows the three suspects walking away from the jewellery store in Barking. They were carrying bags containing £50,000 worth of stolen jewellery.
The police are hoping the CCTV footage will help with their enquiries.
According to Scotland Yard, two of the suspects walked into Turquoise Jewellers, on London Road on Tuesday, December 27 at around 6.40pm and asked the manager if he wanted to buy some jewellery.
The 45-year-old manager said ‘no’ to the two men, who then punched him a number of times over the head and face before tying him up.
The two suspects emptied the contents of the safe and the shop, whilst the tird man kept watch outside.
The manager suffered head and facial injuries as a result of the raid, which he reported to the police. He was taken to a hospital in east London.
DC Andy Davenport from the Flying Squad, said: “We are keen to identify the three men in the CCTV footage so we can speak to them about the incident. We would also urge anyone who witnessed the incident to contact us.”
All three suspects are described as white males with beards. One of the men was carrying a hessian laundry bag over his shoulder and another had a dark bag across his waist, they were all wearing trainers.
Officers investigating the robbery are asking anyone with information, including witnesses, to come forward and if anoyone recognises the men from the CCTV footage, they’re urged to contact the police on 101, or via Twitter @Metcc.
