An appeal has been launched to trace the brave man who grabbed one of the suspects in a failed 'smash and grab' robbery in Victoria.
Detectives from the Flying Squad are appealing to trace the member of public who intervened the incident at Suttons & Robertsons Pawnbrokers on Victoria Street on Thursday (January 26) morning.
Officers have described the man they wish to speak to seen wearing a distinctive yellow hi-vis jacket.
The Metropolitan Police said they were called to reports of people who had arrived on mopeds and were smashing windows at around 10.30am.
Officers said the suspects were disturbed by passing members of the public and the sounds of police sirens.
It is believed they fled the scene of the jewellery store empty-handed.
However one of the five-man gang, who were on three mopeds, was detained by a passer-by.
The remaining four suspects wanted in connection with the incident are described wearing dark clothing, one with a light coloured helmet and the others with dark coloured helmets.
There were no injuries as a result of this incident.
An appeal for witnesses to the incident or anyone with information about the suspects are urged to come forward.
Detective Sergeant Alan Stimson, from the Flying Squad, said: "I would like to thank the members of the public who so bravely intervened.
"We have spoken to a number of witnesses and whilst our enquiries continue, it is of paramount importance that we trace all those who saw something that day.
"Anyone with any information should contact us at the earliest opportunity."
