Victoria Police confirmed that on Friday 3 October at around 1:30pm, three masked men were involved in an armed robbery at a jewellery store in Brunswick, Victoria.

Multiple media reports have identified the store as Medina Jewellery, stating that the thieves were armed with a gun, a knife, a taser and an axe and threatened to kill the store employees and two customers who had been in the store at the time.

CCTV footage showed one man holding the store owner at gunpoint while the other two men smashed through glass cabinets, stuffing both jewellery and cash into bags before making their escape.

It’s believed the three thieves escaped with about 70 kg of jewellery, including the entire front window display. The trio’s haul is estimated to be valued between $250,000 and $300,000.
