The car used by suspects in the Mayfair robbery
TWO security workers at a Mayfair fashion boutique were threatened by armed men in a smash-and-grab raid.
Detectives are now appealing for the public’s help to identify the vehicle that was used by the suspects – a silver S-Type Jaguar – which was rammed into the front door of Celine.
Police were called to the designer store in Mount Street at 2am on October 30.
Four men threatened the staff with a knife and a shotgun before stealing more than £110,000 of designer goods.
The Met police said the getaway car travelled along St John’s Wood Road and Park Road.
Detective Constable Kevin Parley, of the Flying Squad, said: “I am asking for anyone who works in the fashion industry, who may have been offered a number of Celine designer goods for sale but is unable to account properly for where they have come from, to also contact police.
“This was an abhorrent crime that involved a group of men, armed with weapons, threatening serious violence to two unarmed security staff before stealing goods that they had no right at all to take.”
