A 101-year-old woman had to look on helplessly as a callous gang of burglars ransacked her home in Bexley.
The woman was on the phone when the first intruder broke in through a small window in the kitchen in Balmoral Gardens, Parkhill Road.
She did not register the thief until he let in two more accomplices, according to a concerned neighbour.
One of the gang kept watch over the victim while they went through the house, taking jewellery, cash from her purse and her passport.
A neighbour, who did not want to be named, said: “She was not hit but was frightened and shaken.”
Police are appealing for information on the burglary at 7.45pm on March 13.
The suspects are described as three men in their late teens or early 20s and wearing dark clothing.
Anyone with information should contact Bexley Police CID on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
