Ram-raid on Leeds Rolex Shop Caught on Camera

Two cars have been videoed attempting to ram-raid a Rolex at Prestons on Commercial Street in Leeds.

West Yorkshire Police were called to the incident at around 11:55 GMT on Sunday 18th February.

One of the vehicles tried to reverse into the front of the store and, when that failed, balaclava-clad men attempted to break-in.

After failing to enter the shop, the group drove off down the pedestrian street.

West Yorkshire Police have confirmed that the shop-front was damaged and that no-one was injured.

This latest ram-raid follows numerous similar attacks on stores throughout Leeds over the past year.

Police were called to two separate ram-raids on the Louis Vuitton store in the Victoria Quarter on Briggate last April and, more recently, the Flannels store on Vicar Lane was ram-raided by masked men on Sunday 31st December.
