The owner of the property in Elm Grove discovered the men at about 11pm on June 20.

After threatening him and his wife, they searched a bedroom and stole several watches, including two Rolex watches, designer belts, cash, a PS3 and Samsung TV.

There were two black men and one white man involved in the aggravated burglary – they all had their faces covered with scarves.

The black men were aged between 20-25 and one of them was about 6ft, of medium build.

The white man is a similar age and was of a large build and wearing a grey hoody.

Dc Lee Winfield, who is investigating, said: “I want to hear from anyone who knows who is responsible. I also want to hear from anyone who is offered the items above to buy.”
