Lavish Dean Street Townhouse Hotel Held Up by 2 Masked Gunmen

Dean Street TownhouseTwo masked gunman burst into the trendy Dean Street Townhouse hotel in London on August 26 and demanded that staff members hand over all of their money and mobile phones. Police said that they were called to the hotel at around 3 a.m. Unfortunately, the two robbers had fled the scene by the time they arrived.

People who saw the crime happen said that the two men were speaking with Eastern European accents. They were also wearing white hoods over their heads, so no one is sure what they look like. Before fleeing the scene, they threatened the staff members and tied up one man. They ended up leaving with an undisclosed amount of money. Police say that no shots were fired during the robbery, and no one was injured. However, one person had to be treated for shock.

Dean Street Townhouse is a very trendy hotel in London. It is used to receive celebrity guests such as Brian Ferry, Kate Moss and Anne Hathaway. In fact, when the hotel opened years ago, the ribbon cutting ceremony was headed by Gwyneth Paltrow. This is a hotel that is no stranger to the rich and famous.

The detective who is working the case, Jess Ruddell, said that the staff members were unharmed but left extremely shaken. It was a very frightening experience for everyone who was involved. They were threatened with long-barrelled guns, so it’s easy to see why everyone is shaken up. Right now, the police are looking for two male suspects. They don’t have many leads right now, except for the fact that the men were wearing white hoods and had Eastern European accents. If anyone knows anything, they are urged to contact the police.

According to reports, the Dean Street Townhouse hotel is part of the well-known Soho House Group. This is the same group that owns a number of private member clubs and boutique hotels all over the world, including Berlin, Hollywood and New York City. Dean Street Townhouse has just 39 bedrooms and its own restaurant within the hotel itself.

The hotel used to be known as the Gargoyle Club. However, in the mid-1970s, the Gargoyle Club closed down. The new owners of the hotel have declined to comment about the hotel robbery. They said that they don’t like to talk to the media about ongoing investigations. This is a pretty standard practice in the world of business.
