TH Baker gifts watch to man who tackled robber


TH Baker has presented a man who intervened in a robbery at one of its stores last month with a watch as a thank you gift.

On July 12 Peter Downes rugby-tackled a robber attempting to flee from TH Baker’s Horsham store with a haul of stolen watches. He was passing the store with his two-year-old daughter when he heard a cry from TH Baker store manager Dominic Toomey.

TH Baker director Phil Higgs invited Downes back to the store to thank him for stepping in during the robbery and presented him with a TAG Heuer watch as a thank you gift.


Higgs told the West Sussex County Times: "It was very kind of him to step in and apprehend the gentleman – it saved us quite a substantial insurance claim.

“We just really appreciate it and we thought it would be nice to say thank you with something he can keep.”
