Three men have been arrested after Amir Khan was robbed at gunpoint in East London.

Bolton born boxer, Amir Khan, was with his wife Faryal in Leyton in April when they were attacked at gunpoint, taking his £70,000 gold watch.

Scotland Yard have confirmed that three men, aged 20, 25 and 34 have all been arrested on suspicion of the robbery after warrants were executed on Wednesday morning.

The 25 year old male has further been arrested on suspicion of possession of a firearm with intent to cause fear of violence, while the 20 year old suspect has been arrested for this and the possession of ammunition.

All three men remain in custody. No shots were fired and noone was injured during the robbery.

Detective Sergeant Lee Warrington of the Met’s Specialist Crime Command said: “Tackling robbery is a key priority for the Met and these arrests demonstrate our commitment to taking those intent on using violence, or the threat of violence, off of our streets.”
