Lewisham armed raid terrifies woman and granddaughter, 4

A woman and her four-year-old granddaughter have endured a "terrifying" raid by armed burglars who forced entry to a home in London.

The masked men, who were carrying guns and a knife, robbed the address in St Asaph Road, Lewisham, on Monday afternoon, police said.

Money and two mobile phones were stolen.

The woman and the girl were taken to hospital, where they were treated for shock.

Det Insp Ian Cameron said: "This was a terrifying attack which occurred in the middle of the day and left both victims traumatised."

Police are looking for five men, who are described as being black and said to have been wearing balaclavas, gloves and dark clothing.

"One of the suspects was wearing a green camouflage jacket," Mr Cameron said.

"I'm convinced that someone in the local area has seen or heard something that could assist us with our investigation."
