A four-year-old girl and her grandmother have been left traumatised by a “terrifying” aggravated burglary in Lewisham.
Five men in balaclavas armed with guns and knives forced their way into an address on St Asaph Road at around 3pm yesterday, police said.
A spokesperson said the victims were suffering from shock but had no physical injuries after the gang demanded cash and raided the property.
Det Insp Ian Cameron, Lewisham`s serious acquisitive crime lead, said: “This was a terrifying attack which occurred in the middle of the day and left both victims traumatised.
“We are looking for five men, they are described as black, wearing balaclavas, gloves and dark clothing. One of the suspects was wearing a green camouflage jacket.
“I’m convinced that someone in the local area has seen or heard something that could assist us with our investigation. I would encourage anyone who has information to speak to our incident room as soon as possible.”
