A man has been violently beaten and robbed at knifepoint by two men who forced their way into his home in Kenton.

The 23-year-old was punched several times in the face, suffering a fractured nose, and threatened with a knife as the pair ransacked the property in Woodgrange Close.

During the robbery the men demanded he showed them were the gold and cash were kept while they rummaged through each room stealing goods including computers, phones and watches.
