After comedian Michael McIntyre was mugged by moped thieves yesterday, the video footage of the extent of his damaged car has now emerged.
The masked thieves targeted the funny man, thought to be worth around £38 million, as he was doing the school run to pick up his kids.
He was waiting outside Golders Gate school in London for his sons, when the star, 42, had his Range Rover attacked and his £15,000 Rolex watch stolen.
A witness claimed to have seen the crime, describing the incident: ‘The guy at the front of the moped, started to hit the driver’s window about ten to 15 times, and it eventually just cracked.’
The witness also said that one thief opened the car door, only for McIntyre to fall out as he fended off the attack.
Afterwards, the star was seen comforting his sons, Lucas, 13, and Oscar, 10, with the driver’s window evidently smashed beyond repair.
Despite the attack, McIntyre appeared calm and unfazed afterwards, as police arrived at the scene of the crime.
Scotland Yard’s statement read:
‘Police were called at 1.59pm on Monday, 4 June to reports of a robbery in North End Road, NW11.
‘Officers attended. The victim was stationary in his car when two males on a moped smashed the car windows with a hammer before stealing property.
‘No injuries were reported. No arrests have been made. Enquiries continue.’
When asked about how the comedian is, his wife of 15 years, Kitty, simply said: ‘No, no. He’s fine.’
McIntyre is one of Britain’s most well-known comedians and is currently embarking on his Big World Tour.
In 2009, the then unknown comedian shot to fame after the success of his BBC television show Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow and has been a household name ever since.
