DC James Drummond from Westminster CID said: "This was a horrifying ordeal for a man just out enjoying a summer evening. He was confronted by masked men brandishing a large knife and they have forcibly removed his watch.

"They appear to have singled him out and deliberately targeted him for this watch and we need to catch them before they target anyone else. The street was busy with traffic and pedestrians and I would appeal to anyone who filmed this incident or took photos to contact police."

Anyone with information or footage concerning this robbery attack is requested to call 101 quoting CAD 6669/07SEP18.
