A gang of thieves robbed London’s Regent Street Apple Store in a brazen overnight raid. After threatening a security guard with a hammer, the group of 10 robbers took off on mopeds with an assortment of iPhones, iPads and Apple Watches.

The Metropolitan Police were called at 12:45 a.m. Monday, just minutes after the thieves broke into the U.K.’s flagship Apple store. Two iPhone X handsets were recovered at the nearby King’s Cross subway station, but the criminals got away.

After being shuttered for all of 2016, Apple’s flagship Regent Street store in London will reopen on Saturday, October 15, Apple has announced.

Working with Foster & Partners, the architectural firm responsible for London’s Gherkin skyscraper, Apple’s renovations plans called for it to update what it calls the “tired and outdated” look of the store front.

What are we expecting instead? Some more Jony Ive minimalism and a whole lot of indoor trees.

When you’re lining up for a brand new iPhone on launch day, the last thing you expect to see outside the Apple Store is a whole team of people from Samsung. But that’s exactly what iPhone 6s buyers in London were greeted by this morning.

Samsung sent a flock of people to gatecrash the iPhone 6s launch at the Apple Store on Regent Street to promote the Galaxy S6 edge and S6 edge+, and to hand out free goodies bearing Samsung’s “#NextisNew” slogan.
