Staff at Arthur Kay & Bro. are resuming business as usual today, less than 24 hours after a terrifying smash and grab robbery.
As reported by WatchPro yesterday afternoon, two robbers rode up on a motorbike and brazenly smashed through the window display with a sledgehammer in broad daylight in front of shocked members of the Manchester public.
Although at this early stage the full extent of the damage and loss is unclear, Arthur Kay & Bro. told WatchPro that “the criminals stole a number of Rolex watches.”
In a statement, the jeweller went on to express its gratitude to its staff for the way they have handled the harrowing episode. “All members of staff involved are shaken from the incident but crucially no-one was hurt. We’d like to thank all members of staff involved for their bravery during this incident,” the statement read.
If anyone has any further footage or information, Arthur Kay & Bro. urge you to call the police on 0161 856 3221 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
