Dramatic footage of a brutal alleged robbery of a couple heading home after an evening out has been released in the hopes of catching the culprits.
A woman can be seen crashing to the ground as two men stoop over her husband and appear to wrestle something away from him.
Detectives say the men had run up behind the couple before pulling them to the floor in Frognal Way, Camden, north-west London, on September 13.
The suspects then allegedly ‘ripped the man’s watch – a black and gold Rolex Yacht Master with a black rubber strap from his wrist and ran off’, police say.
Sergeant Max Pennington of the Metropolitan Police has urged jewelers and pawnbrokers to get in touch if they are offered the watch, which is worth up to £28,000.
The force is also ‘keen to hear from anyone who can identify the two men’, he said.
Officers were called to the scene just before 7pm and searched the area to no avail.
