Two men with an AK-47 robbed a Cartier jewellery store near Paris's Champs-Elysees

Two men with an AK-47 robbed a Cartier jewellery store near Paris's Champs-Elysees on Tuesday, leading to a police chase and a brief hostage-taking when they sought refuge in a hair salon.
The suspects agreed to release the hostage and turn themselves in, with the entire drama lasting about two hours. Police recovered a cache of jewels the men had stolen.
One witness inside the Cartier store located in a busy touristic area said the two men, who did not seem "professional", burst in late in the day and forced the three customers inside and about 10 staff to lie down.
They then demanded that the store's showcases be opened, but were interrupted as they gathered jewellery by the sound of police sirens.
The suspects fled with the store manager. A witness told AFP he saw one of them dressed in a trench coat and a beret, with a towel on one hand and holding the hostage with the other.
