Detectives are appealing for information after releasing a CCTV image of a knife point robbery at a Carphone Warehouse store.
Police were called at just after 6pm on Wednesday to reports of a robbery at the Carphone Warehouse in Hampstead High Street. Three black men dressed in orange boiler suits threatened a staff member with a knife and forced their way into the store as it was closing.
They then stole thousands of pounds worth of stock and left the store in a dark green Ford Transit van. No one was injured during the armed robbery.
DC Johnny Baker who leads the investigation said:
"I would appeal to anyone who was in the area and saw this incident to contact officers. I am particularly interested to speak to anyone who saw the dark green Ford Transit van making off from the scene."
Anyone with information should call 020 8358 1752 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
