Burglar made threat to kill young boy with screwdriver

Police have released an Efit of a woman they want to speak to in relation to an aggravated burglary.

Police were called at 2:07pm on Friday, 31 January to reports of an aggravated burglary at a residential property on Taywood Road in Northolt.

Officers attended and spoke to the victim who said a woman knocked on the front door to speak to them before three men – wearing balaclavas and masks – forced their way into the property.

One of the suspects threatened to kill the victim’s young child with a screwdriver, while demanding that valuables were handed over immediately. They then made off with cash and jewellery. No arrests have been made and enquiries continue. 

Detective Sergeant Neil Hudson, from West Area Command Unit, said: “Thankfully both victims weren’t physically harmed but they have been left terribly distraught by the callous actions of these people.

“The incident is even more disturbing by the fact that a young boy was threatened with a weapon during the attack. I urge anyone who recognises this woman to contact us immediately.”

Anyone who has information that could assist police is asked to call 101 with reference Cad 4170/31Jan.
