Police have released an Efit image of a woman sought in relation to an aggravated burglary.

Police were called at 2:07pm on Friday, 31 January to reports of an aggravated burglary at a 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 police have said via their website.

One of the suspects threatened to kill the victim’s young child with a screwdriver, while demanding that valuables were handed over immediately.

The burglars made off with cash and jewellery stolen from the property. No arrests have been made in relation to this 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.”
