Watch: Ram raiders batter their way into Toy Shop to steal games consoles
The site was sealed off by officers while forensic enquiries took place.
This was a sustained and violent attack on an elderly man.
We believe he challenged a man found inside the premises which led to the unprovoked attack taking place.
The attacker then left the factory and the injured man was not discovered until five hours later.
Enquiries are continuing and we are studying CCTV and carrying our forensic investigations at the scene.
We are still trying to establish what the man was doing inside the premises and what, if anything was stolen. Witnesses or anyone with information should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers, in confidence, on 0800 555 111.
London – Police in Britain have released images showing the aftermath of the audacious raid on safety deposit boxes inside London s jewelry district.
Police say the gang gained access by climbing down an elevator shaft.
The images released Wednesday show how the gang then drilled through 2 meter-thick (6-foot thick) concrete walls to get to the vault.
The burglars then forced open some 70 safety deposit boxes in the heist in Hatton Garden, a street that is home to many jewelry and diamond businesses.
Police found the vault covered with debris and strewn with power tools, including an angle grinder, concrete drills and crowbars.
Police have not put an estimate on how much was stolen.
The robbery took place over the long Easter weekend and was not detected until businesses reopened.
