Brondesbury family cower in locked room as robbers ransack their home

Raiders made off with jewellery and cash on Sunday night

A family were forced to cower in a locked room as robbers raided their home in Brondesbury on Sunday night.

Five balaclava-clad intruders made off with jewellery and cash after storming the house in Brondesbury Park, at around 11.15pm.

A 34-year-old woman was frogmarched upstairs before the gang ransacked the property which had a further seven people inside.

The raiders escaped by smashing their way out through a window and fleeing in a black saloon getaway car waiting on the drive.

Police are appealing for anyone who witnesses the robbers driving away or anyone with information to call the incident room on 020 8733 3116 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
