A man was attacked with a hammer after confronting thieves as they stole from a jewellery shop in Stony Stratford this morning.
The thieves smashed through the front window of SpadiniOro Jewellers on the High Street to grab a tray of antique jewellery at around 11am.
The victim saw the incident from inside the shop and came out to confront them when he was struck over the head with a hammer.
The offenders took off in a small white Ford van.
Thames Valley Police arrived to the scene of the robbery shortly afterwards, where the victim was being taken to hospital by ambulance.
One person has been arrested and is currently in police custody.
