Police in Hounslow are appealing for help in finding three suspects who assaulted two elderly victims after forcing their way into their Bedfont home.

The men entered an address along Bedfont Close at 7.20pm on Sunday, October 29 where, armed with a weapon, they demanded gold and later assaulted the 74 and 79-year-old victims.

The suspects then made off from the scene in a light coloured vehicle, which police believe could have been silver.

Police describe the suspects as Eastern European males in their early twenties.

They were all of slim build and were wearing dark clothing and gloves with black masks covering their faces.
