Gucci London store hit by ram-raid

Around 50 bags lifted from Knightsbridge store

Gucci’s flagship store has fallen victim to ram-raid robbers.

Around 50 designer handbags, some worth up to £40,000, were taken in the audacious raid late on Wednesday evening.

A Mercedes – thought to be stolen – smashed through the doors of Gucci’s Knightsbridge store at around 21:50 GMT and four men in balaclavas helped themselves to some of the store’s priciest and most coveted stock before making their getaway in a blue Audi A4.


Although there were security guards in the store at the time, nobody was hurt.

According to the BBC, Gucci is now reviewing its security and there are calls for greater protection from the Metropolitan Police. London’s luxury boutiques have been increasingly targeted by this kind of crime in recent years.

A police investigation is ongoing.
