Detective Chief Inspector Harry Hennigan said: "It is miraculous how nobody was injured during the shocking events. The suspects had absolutely no regard for public safety and they could have very easily mown down an unsuspecting shopper or member of staff. We continue to reiterate appeals for information and urge anyone who may have seen the sequence of events to contact us.
"We are also appealing to anyone who may have seen the three motorbikes being driven from Brent Cross to Mill Hill. We urge anyone with information to call our incident room."
The motorbikes were found abandoned approximately 15 minutes later on Ashley Walk in Mill Hill near to a golf course.
Anyone with information is asked to the Flying Squad on 020 8358 1751 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
