Armed robbers broke into the luxury Bulgari store on Place Vendome in central Paris at noon on Saturday, making off with items worth several million euros, police and prosecutors said.

Three people who arrived on two motorbikes entered the shop around 1:45 p.m. local time, a police source said, citing preliminary information.

Two of the attackers were carrying weapons, the source added, saying they hit a security guard.

The loot reaches several million euros, a source close to the investigation told AFP.

The same Bulgari boutique was the target of an armed robbery in September 2021, when thieves made off with around €10 million in loot.

Video posted on social media on Saturday showed two large black motorcycles parked on the sidewalk in front of the jewelry store.

A helmeted man with a gun and black clothing is seen standing as a guard.

Later, three men can be seen leaving on two motorbikes.

After the 2021 robbery at the Bulgari store, one of the robbers was injured in the leg by a police officer.

He was arrested, charged and imprisoned.

In June 2022, two more suspects, aged 26 and 37 at the time, were arrested.

They were also charged and remanded in custody.

Italian jeweler Bulgari is owned by French fashion group LVMH.
