Selfridges 'Smash And Grab': Two Men Held

Two men have been arrested after passers-by reportedly pinned them down them after an audacious raid at Selfridges.

The robbery happened late on Thursday evening while customers were shopping in the world famous department store in London's Oxford Street.

Armed police were sent to the scene after a gang wielding axes smashed display cabinets to get at jewellery items, a Metropolitan Police spokesman said.

The two suspects were detained after coming off a moped as they tried to make a getaway from the store.
