Terrifying moment mum holding baby is threatened at knifepoint by home invaders wearing Tesco jacket as manhunt launched | The Sun
AN urgent hunt is on for two men after invaders burst into a mum's home and threatened her at knifepoint as she held her young chid.
Shocking footage shows the moment one of the men forced his way inside the 22-year-old's London home before pulling a knife on her.
The man is demanding money as he holds the knife to the terrified woman's head.
He can be seen aggressively pushing her against the kitchen bench, before forcing her outside – with the knife to her back.
The mum has her child in her arms the entire time.
Police have today released the footage of the horror moment, which unfolded in Wandsworth, South West London, on Tuesday.
