NONTHABURI: An armed man robbed an Aurora gold shop in the Big C superstore mall on Rattanathibet road in Muang district on Wednesday morning, and fled with 11 gold rings.

Pol Maj Piset Sakkhamthong, a Muang police duty officer, said the holdup occurred about 11am.  

Witnesses told police the robber was a man, about 180 centimetres tall, wearing jeans, a navy blue long-sleeve shirt and a pair of gloves. He entered the mall and walked around looking at clothes before moving to the gold shop, which had just opened.

A male employee was putting gold jewellery into a showcase from a tray. The robber threatened him with a pistol, grabbed the gold rings from the tray and ran away through the store's back door. 

He made off with 11 rings, worth about 90,000 baht in total.
