Kathryn Blair, Former Prime Minister, Tony Blair’s 25 year old daughter, was held at gunpoint on Monday during a failed robbery attempt near her home in London's posh Marylebone neighborhood.

Kathryn, a lawyer, was reportedly walking her dog with friends, including her boyfriend, at 8:30 p.m. local time when she was approached by two men, one holding a gun. They demanded the group give them cash and jewelry, but reports say nothing was stolen and no one was injured.

“A firearm was seen but not used – not shots were fired. None of the victims were injured and nothing was stolen,” said London’s Metropolitan Police in a statement.

It is unclear how the robbery was interrupted, but the Metropolitan Police suspect that the robbery is related to a similar robbery that took place in the area 30 minutes prior to the incident involving Kathryn. No arrests have been made, according to NBC News.

“Kathryn was with a group of friends. No one was hurt and nothing was stolen,” said a spokesman for the Blair family.

The frightening incident comes on the heels of the wedding of Tony Blair’s oldest child, Euan, who married Suzanne Ashman last Saturday.
