The robbers are reported to have stolen a quantity of gold jewellery

A suspected robbery in Bexley involving two invaders wearing balaclavas left victims ‘distressed and shaken’.

Now police are appealing for witness of the robbery which took place in the Tile Kiln area, between 3.45pm and 4.15 on Sunday, April 23.

The couple who live in the house were threatened by the intruders who were wearing balaclavas and stole a quantity of gold jewellery.

Investigating officer detective constable Steven Brown said: “The couple were not hurt in any way but it was a distressing incident and they were understandably shaken by it.

“We are appealing for anyone in the area at the time who may have seen someone acting suspiciously to contact us.

“We are particularly keen to hear from anyone who saw – or has dashcam footage of – vehicles leaving the area at speed on Sunday afternoon or perhaps saw any waiting vehicles with occupants in.”

The two offenders are described as white and aged between 20 and 30. They may have had Liverpool accents. One was wearing jeans, a white teeshirt and grey gloves.

If you have any information about the incident please phone Kent Police on 01474 366149 or Kent Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111 quoting reference number XY/18298/17.
