The men smashed the comedian's car windows
Michael McIntyre was robbed by two men riding a moped while he waited in his car outside his children’s school.
The comedian was parked at the school as he waited to pick his kids up. The men reportedly smashed his car windows with a hammer before stealing McIntyre’s watch.
They then sped off and left McIntyre with no injuries. His publicist told the BBC that McIntyre was doing “fine” after the incident.
“The victim was stationary in his car when two males on a moped smashed the car windows with a hammer before stealing property,” the Metropolitan Police said in a statement. They added that they were called at 13:59 BST on June 4 to reports of a robbery in North End Road.
No arrests have been made and police are asking that anyone with information about the incident should call 101 quoting CAD4018/04JUN or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
