Two thugs who robbed an 87-year-old woman at knifepoint in her own home are being hunted by police.
Detectives have released images of jewellery stolen during the raid just before 6.30pm on Wednesday last week in the hope of tracking the pair.
The victim was at home on the North Circular Road when two men came in from the back garden, one of whom held a knife to her throat and told her they would hurt her if she didn’t stay quiet.
They then went upstairs and stolen £1,000 in cash and gold jewellery, including the necklace, ring and bangles pictured.
One of the men was black, about 5ft 10in and was wearing navy blue trousers, a navy shirt and a cap.
The other was white, slim and had a moustache. He was wearing a maroon shirt and thought to be in his late teens.
Police say anyone who has seen the jewellery for sale should get in touch.
