Armed, they robbed a Chanel store in Paris before getting on a scooter:

Four helmeted and masked men, at least one of whom was carrying an assault rifle, robbed a luxury Chanel watch and jewelry store near Place Vendme in the heart of Paris on Thursday afternoon, we learned with police.

The same source said that the four fled with scooters and motorcycles, adding that no one was injured. The captured Bandit Repression Brigade (BRB) rushed to the spot, announced the Paris Police Headquarters in a tweet.

The robbery was filmed by a surfer who posted his video on a social network. We clearly see four people wearing black, helmets and hooded clothes. Three come out of the shop, while the fourth hits a rifle in the shoulder on a motorcycle. Two on a scooter, the other two on a motorcycle. Both gears are black in colour.

The luxury boutique is located on Rue de la Paix, not far from Place Vendme, known for its renowned jewellers. Shortly after the incidents, Rue de la Paix was surrounded by a security cordon and police personnel were distributed in front of the shop, which had its metal curtain down, said an AFP journalist.

A witness says: “At the corner of rue Dounou and rue de la Paix, there was a biker with a Kalashnikov hanging over his shoulder, looking slightly to the right and left if other people were coming. There were people who were filming opposite their phones. And quite calmly, he told his colleagues to hurry. One came out earlier, he told him we didn’t take everything”.

they also had automatic weapons

Anastasia, 26, a saleswoman at a costume store located opposite the Chanel store, told AFP it was “at 2:30 pm” when the robbery took place. “I was smoking a cigarette before my lunch when I saw a lonely man on a motorbike with Kalashnikov,

“Two minutes later, three more men came out with big black bags. They also had automatic weapons and they got on two motorbikes and left very quickly,” He added.

For 31-year-old Cyril, who was the supervisor at the same store as the young woman, it “wasn’t professional, because it lasted a good ten minutes”. “There are people who crossed in front of the lookout without knowing that he was armed”, He continued, “A customer warned us. We immediately called the police, who didn’t believe us. We had to call back, he said, so they would take us seriously and intervene”. The amount of the loot was not disclosed till afternoon.
