Three men are being hunted by police after a tourist was stabbed in the arm and had his £115,000 watch stolen in a targeted attack.
The 55-year-old victim was attacked in Berkeley Square, in London’s Mayfair.
The Metropolitan Police said the man was visiting the capital and suffered a deep wound in the 9 June incident last year.
Detective Constable Eve Kelly said: “This violent robbery was committed in broad daylight, and it appears that the victim was specifically targeted for his watch.”He and his wife were left shaken, and have since received counselling to help deal with the impact of this robbery.”
The suspects, in their 30s, of Mediterranean appearance and medium build, ran off in the direction of Park Lane with the Breguet Tourbillon timepiece.
Police have now released images of three men they are seeking in connection with the attack.
It took place about a mile away from where 20-year-old student Mohamed Abdullah Al Araimi was stabbed to death in an attempted robbery over his expensive watch on 5 December last year.
The Omani national, who was studying politics and economics at King’s College, was targeted near luxury department store Harrods in Knightsbridge.
Badir Rahim Alnazi, of Brent, northwest London, 23, has been charged with murder, attempted robbery and possession of a blade in relation to the attack.
