Urgent hunt for man known to have Southwark links ‘involved in violent £4.1million jewellery robbery’

A man known to have links to Elephant and Castle and Southwark is urgently wanted by police in connection with a ‘violent’ £4.1million jewellery robbery last month.

Officers for Surrey Police said on Tuesday they were “out searching” for Ciro Troyano, who is wanted for conspiracy to commit robbery and assault causing grievous bodily harm.

He is being sought after a salesman was robbed of millions of pounds worth of jewellery in a car-park in Staines-upon-Thames, Surrey, on May 13.

The victim was getting out of his car when he was reportedly robbed by a number of men, who assaulted him before making off with the bag containing the jewellery.

The salesman was left suffering “serious injuries” in the robbery.

Troyano is white, approximately 5ft 6in tall and of medium build.

Detectives said he is known to have links to the Southwark, Elephant and Castle and Brixton areas.

Detective Sergeant Kate Hyder, who is investigating the robbery, said: “We are urgently trying to track down Ciro Troyano, who is wanted to relation to this violent robbery.

“We are looking for any information, no matter how insignificant it might seem, which could lead us to where he is.

“The victim was left with nasty injuries following the attack and we are keen to ensure that those responsible are brought to justice.”

Surrey Police said they were carrying out a “number of enquiries” to track down Troyano, but urged anyone with information to contact them “straightaway”.

Two men aged 39 and 48 were arrested earlier this morning in London in connection with the investigation. Police declined to tell the News where in the capital they were arrested.

The pair are currently in custody.

Anyone with information is asked to call 101, quoting PR/45190049457.

Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111.
