Man enters jewellers posing as a customer and assaults member of staff
A man, posing as a customer, entered Ascot Goldsmiths on Friday, where he proceeded to assault a member of staff and run off with a number of jewellery items.
The victim sustained an injury to his head and was taken to Wexham Park Hospital. He was discharged later the same day.
The offender, who entered the store on Course Road at approximately 11am, was described by police as ‘being of smart appearance and wearing a dark coloured suit.’ He also wore dark coloured sunglasses and had ‘big black hair’,
Inquiries by police suggests that the offender arrived at the shop on a motorbike, possibly with another man who remained outside near to the shop. Once the offender exited the shop with the stolen goods, it is believed that he was picked back up by his accomplice on the motorbike. The pair are thought to have driven off along the High Street, towards Winkfield Road.
Shortly afterwards, a motorbike believed to have been used by the offenders, was found abandoned near Cheapside Road, Ascot. Further inquiries suggest that the pair then made off in a silver coloured van with writing on the side.
