Axe-wielding robbers storm Ritz-Carlton hotel in Paris…make off with £3.5million of jewellery

5a567f5d3280d.jpgPolice are currently hunting the rest of the gang who managed to escape. Shots were heard as at least five raiders rushed into the five-star ‘palace’ brandishing weapons, as panicked staff and guests were told to lie on the floor.

‘The attackers then used axes to smash open reinforced glass cases containing jewellery, while filling bags,’ said a source at the world famous hotel, which is in Place Vendome (Vendome Square).

‘As they tried to get away, police officers arrived, and three of the robbers were pulled to the ground and then arrested.

‘Two others got out the back door of the hotel, and were seen running away, and then getting on mopeds.’

It was at around 6.30pm that guests drinking in the Hemingway Bar, at the back of the hotel, first heard the commotion.

‘Bar staff told everybody to remain calm, and not to do anything stupid. Some clients were ushered down into the basement for safety. Shots from what sounded like a handgun were heard at one point.

‘There were initial fears that a terrorist attack was going on, but it soon became clear that it was a robbery.

‘Two others got out the back door of the hotel, and were seen running away, and then getting on mopeds.’

Police sources estimated the value of the robbers’ haul as being worth ‘at least’ the equivalent of £4million.
