Man caught after fleeing with 20,000-yuan bracelet from downtown jewelry store

A man who fled after robbing a 20,000-yuan gold bracelet from downtown Shanghai Wing On Department Store on Tuesday was caught by police in Zhouning, southeast China’s Fujian Province at 5pm yesterday. The police recovered the lost bracelet.

The 28-year-old man, surnamed Xiao, was sent back to Shanghai under police escort at 8am today.

The man pretended that he wanted to try on the bracelet and grabbed it suddenly and fled on Tuesday night.

The man fled too quickly for the shocked security guards and sales personnel to catch him, said Sun Li, assistant manager of the security service department of the store, which is on the Nanjing Road Pedestrian Mall.

The robbery happened at a jewelry counter on the first floor about 20 meters from the door of the department store, which is the nearest gold counter to the door, police said. The bracelet weighed 70 grams.
