LONDON: Former British prime minister Tony Blair’s daughter Kathryn was held at gunpoint during an attempted robbery in central London.
BBC News reported earlier that Kathryn Blair, 25 was targeted as she walked down a street in Marylebone with her boyfriend and friends.
Metropolitan police said the incident involving two male suspects with a gun happened in Ivor Place at 10.30pm (British Time) on Monday.
It was reported that a firearm was seen, but not used, and no one was hurt and nothing was stolen.
Police said one of the suspects was wearing dark clothing and a balaclava, while the other had a scarf wrapped around his face.
It is believed the incident is linked to another attempted robbery at Boston Place about 30 minutes before the incident, which involved a female victim and a male suspect.
Police are also tracking down CCTV footage covering the area for more information on the incidents.
Kathryn, a barrister, is the third child of Tony and Cherie Blair, who also have three sons - Euan, Nicholas and Leo.
