A Doncaster town centre jewellers was robbed this morning.
A suspect wearing a hoodie was being hunted by police in the Market Place area after the incident around 10.30am.
Witnesses said he had been lurking near the market before entering the Antique and Bargain Stores, which deals in gold and jewellery.
A woman described seeing a ‘dodgy’ character hanging about near stalls opposite the shop.
But neighbouring shopkeepers said they had no idea the robbery had occurred until police arrived.
A paramedic was also called to the scene but it is not yet known if anyone has been hurt.
