A spokesperson for Scotland Yard has confirmed that no arrests have been made after Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone was injured in a mugging on Wednesday. The 80-year-old billionaire was treated in hospital for head injuries he sustained in the attack, in which the four muggers stole £200,000 of jewellery from him and his 31-year-old girlfriend.

The attack occurred as Ecclestone visited his company’s office with girlfriend Fabiana Flosi—who was reportedly “shaken” but uninjured—in central London. “There can be little doubt that this was a targeted robbery because of who Mr. Ecclestone is,” a police source said. “The muggers were callous and showed little regard for the victims. They need to be caught.”

Police confirmed that “[a] man was taken to a west London hospital for treatment to a minor head injury and was subsequently discharged. There were no reports of any other injuries. Officers from W … Read More robbery squad are investigating. There have been no arrests and inquiries continue.” Four years ago, Ecclestone was mugged as he parked his car outside his £10 million home in Chelsea Square; two wheels were taken from the car.
