Police were called by staff at David Mellors & Sons jewellers after the store was raided on September 11.
Witnesses described seeing two people on a motorbike pull into Waterloo Court from Wellington Road. The motorbike did a u-turn, during which the pillion passenger jumped from the bike and ran into the jewellers, where he or she proceeded to smash the glass cabinets with a hammer.
The shop manager tackled the robber, who immediately fled the shop. The suspect got back onto the motorbike and the pair fled the scene towards Wellington Road, where it turned right and out of sight.
