Schwechat crooks raid jewellers and flee to capital

Austrian police are hunting crooks who made sure they put all the police cars in Schwechat east of Vienna out of action before staging a raid on a jewellers.

The crooks slashed the tyres on the police cars then battered their way into the jewellers using force and ignoring the fact that they had set off the alarm. When police responded to the alarm they realised that the tyres on their patrol cars had been slashed – delaying the pursuit.

According to an eyewitness there were four men involved in the raid who had smashed the window to get into the shop and then fled in a car in the direction of the capital Vienna.
