Armed raiders burst into house in delivery scam and hold children at knife point

This is the terrifying moment armed robbers burst into a family home before holding children at knife point and demanding cash.

A 13-year-old had to shield her younger siblings during the horrendous incident which left those who went through it traumatised.

Now dad Naz, 49, has spoken out and shared terrifying CCTV of the raiders rushing in after their accomplice who was posing as a delivery driver.

The ordeal began at 2.30pm on Monday as a man in a bright orange hi-vis jacket and holding a parcel buzzed on the door of the property in Beresford Road, Walthamstow.

In footage released by Naz and the Met Police four men then run at the house, two of them leaping over the fence, and burst through the front door.

Naz and wife, Kumar were out at the shops but their five children – a nine-year-old, 12-year-old, 13-year-old, 20-year-old and 24-year-old – were at home.

The man asked for a signature for the package he was carrying so the teenage girl who answered the door called for her older sister.

As she turned her back he pushed her through the front door and pointed a large knife at her while four other men, all armed with knives, rushed in.

The men tore there way through the property in search of valuables, threatening those inside as they went.

The 24-year-old required hospital treatment for concussion , while the 20-year-old suffered facial injuries.

The men made off with jewellery, phones, passports, iPads, a designer handbag, ear pods, ID cards, passports and designer watches from the address.

Recounting the raid Naz said: “My 20-year-old was upstairs when she heard the commotion.

“She ran to the loft to hide and call the police.

“However, they heard her footsteps and ran after her.

“She tried to shut the bathroom door but they pushed the door in, hit her, grabbed the phone off her and put a knife against her back.

“They marched her down the stairs and hit her repeatedly, asking for money.

“My daughter kept saying we didn’t have any because there was no money in the house.

“My kids were terrorised.

“They grabbed my nine-year-old daughter’s arm, trying to scare them into telling them where the money was, but there was no money in the house.

“My oldest daughter and teenager daughter jumped in front of the men to protect the younger siblings.

“They had all the girls downstairs and marched the older two upstairs asking them to hand them all their belongings.

“The little three younger girls were downstairs and screaming on their own.

“They were hiding behind the sofa but the men took the two of them with knives against their back.

“The thirteen-year-old stood in front of the younger two to defend them, she was so brave.

“They tore the house apart.

“They took what they did, two of them left initially and the three of them left after that.

“My nine-year-old is in a lot of pain and her arms are hurting. The kids are hurt physically and mentally.”
