Two robbers stormed into a jewellery shop in the Korkeavuorenkatu area of Helsinki on Tuesday afternoon and took away ornaments and cash from the shop.

The police arrested the alleged robbers immediately after the incident.

The police said two robbers wearing motorcycle helmets entered Rubens jewellery at about 4:00 pm and took away gold and cash at gunpoint. They also managed to escape after the robbery.

But a bystander informed the police about the incident and the law enforcers captured both the bandits from a nearby area.

The police did not disclose the value of the robbed ornaments but said it is remarkable.

An investigation is going on in this regard.
