"The display window was broken and the shop had been ransacked. A one-metre sledgehammer was found inside the store.

"Three masked men used a hammer to break the display window of the story at about 6.30am before entering," said a police spokesperson, as reported by South China Morning Post (SCMP) yesterday, 4 December.

The robbers got away with one Yves Saint Laurent and 14 Hermès bags.

Based on initial investigations, the authorities believe that the three suspects had scouted the area prior to the robbery

The perpetrators had allegedly arrived in a white seven-seater which was driven by the fourth suspect who pulled over on the Pottinger Street. The trio had then jumped out and ran into Man Yee Building shopping centre in Central where Guiltless is located at. 

The police told SCMP that the robbery took less than a minute. The incident was reported by a security guard when he saw the store's damaged display windows at about 7.49am. 

It was reported that the detectives from the Central police department are handling the case and so far, no one has been arrested. 

Yen Kuok is Malaysia's richest man, Robert Kuok Hock Nien's youngest daughter. In January 2016, she opened Guiltless, an online boutique that sells pre-loved designer goods.
