The events took place around 11:45 a.m. The robbers “used motorcycles to commit their misdeed and flee,” detailed the police Source, confirming information from -17.

“According to initial information, there were three of them and fled with a motorcycle and a scooter,” said the Source close to the investigation.

“A shot was fired from outside the establishment” but “no injuries were reported,” we added. It would be a “dissuasion” shot, according to the Source close to the investigation.

An investigation was opened and entrusted to the banditry repression brigade (BRB) of the Paris judicial police, indicated the Paris prosecutor’s office. A public prosecutor visited the site, the same Source said.

Already two robberies in 2007 and 2008

The damage will not be known precisely “for several days” according to the Source close to the investigation, but could amount to several million euros if we consider the previous robberies which affected this luxury establishment.

The Harry Winston jewelry store on Avenue Montaigne was the target of a double robbery in 2007 and 2008, during which 900 pieces of jewelry were stolen, for damage established by the jeweler’s insurer at 78.9 million euros, one of the largest in the world in this type of business.
