Owner attacked as thieves enter store after earlier bungled raid.
Surrey jeweller Jewels of Cobham has been attacked for the second time in four days, but after a failed attempt on Tuesday thieves succeeded in entering the shop on Friday and attacked the store’s owner.
North Surrey Police said that two men on motorbikes smashed through the shop window of the high-end store at 11.30am on Friday. One of the thieves is said to have attacked the owner of the shop when he tried to protect his property.
It is unclear how much stock was stolen from Jewels of Cobham, but North Surrey Police have said that the haul is believed to be valued at several thousands of pounds.
A North Surrey Police spokesperson said: "Detectives are keeping an open mind about the possibility that the offences may be linked given the short time between the incidents and the fact they took place at the same location."
The attack followed an attempted raid on the shop on Tuesday last week when the shop was attacked by a gang of four men on motorbikes. The gang attempted to smash through the window and then tried to ram the shop door with their bikes, but both attempts failed.
