Police release images of claw hammer suspects who allegedly drove off with safe still attached to table
Hackney police have released images of two suspects who allegedly threatened a Shoreditch car park attendant with a claw hammer, before driving off with a safe – attached to a table – hanging out of their boot.
The robbery took place at EC2 Car Park in King John Court, Shoreditch, at around 6.40pm on Thursday October 11.
The suspects demanded money from a safe located in a cabin in the car park.
They threatened the attendant when he denied knowledge of the safe’s code.
