The robbery occurred late Wednesday evening when five thieves, some armed with axes, smashed display cases at The Ritz and sent hotel guests and workers into panic.

Three men were arrested as they tried to flee by the way they came in with bags of gems and watches worth over 4 million euros ($4.8 million) but came up against locked doors.

One report suggests that one of the three arrested was dressed as a builder.

Three of the group, all aged in their 30s, were arrested at the hotel, while two others are believed to have fled by auto and motorbike.

A police team in charge of patrolling the square - home to some of Paris' top jewellers and watchmakers, as well as the Justice Ministry - was quickly on the scene.

Several high-end Paris jewelry stores have been targets of dramatic robberies in recent years, including Cartier, Harry Winston and Chopard.

The hotel, opened in 1898, has been owned by Egyptian billionaire Mohamed Al-Fayed - father of Diana's boyfriend Dodi Al-Fayed who was also killed in the crash - since 1979.

The suspects inside threw bags of goods out a window to at least two accomplices outside, according to a police official.

A police official said Thursday that one perpetrator dropped a bag with jewels and hatchets when his motorcycle hit a pedestrian during his escape. The other made his getaway on a motorbike. It was at the Ritz that Diana, Princess of Wales, spent her last night in 1997 before the vehicle crash that killed her and her lover Dodi Fayed, son of the hotel's owner Mohammed al-Fayed.

The hotel's management has declined to comment on the robbery.

France has found itself repeatedly in the headlines for high-profile robberies, particularly in Paris and on the Riviera. Kim Kardashian West said she lost millions of dollars' worth of jewelry when she was robbed at gunpoint in a Paris apartment in October 2016.
