Two men entered the property in Commonside East after forcing open the front door. They ran upstairs, attacked their 36-year-old victim and demanded gold.

They also threatened to take her daughter.

Police said the assailants escaped through the front door with a large amount of gold jewellery - valued at £40,000 after the incident, which took place at about 10pm on October 10.

The suspects are described as black, aged in their late teens or early 20s. Their faces were obscured with bandanas/hoods.

The first is described as short, around 5ft 3ins in height and wearing a brown tweed cap. The second is described as taller and slimmer, around 5ft 7ins, with darker skin.

There were a number of similar offences in Mitcham reported to police in October.

Anyone with information should call Merton CID on 020 8649 3118 or, to remain anonymous, Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
