Police are appealing for help returning a tranche of jewellery stolen from a St John’s Wood property in a frightening January raid.
Three knive-wielding men forced their way into a home in the area after simply knocking – they were mistaken for delivery drivers.
The men, who have only been described as black, over five foot ten, and wearing masks, then threatened a woman and two young children with knives.
£800,000 worth of jewellery was taken, along with handbags, watches and mobile phones before the men with them before fleeing the scene in the victim’s own car.
The crime, which took place at about ten past five on January 18, saw no-one harmed, and the vehicle was recovered nearby.

“We are now appealing for people to think about whether they have been offered this stolen jewellery and if so, to come forward.”
