Masked gang pin mum to bed and hold knife to her face during break in

A mother was tied to her bed with a knife in front of her face after emerging from the shower to masked men storming her house.

The victim suffered a blade wound on the cheek during the terrible ordeal in which the men stole cash and jewelry.

CCTV captured the moment the gang – who it believes were wielding a gun – broke into their home after throwing a brick through the back door.

The mother of two said she was in the bathroom when she heard a loud noise around 5:30 p.m. on Saturday.

She said, “I heard a bang when I was in the shower. I have two dogs and they were barking, but with the wind I thought something had fallen into the garden.

“I heard another bang and jumped out of the shower and saw three masked men with knives and guns demanding cash and jewelry.”

The 27-year-old said she didn’t have anything of value but added, “One of the boys pinned me to the bed. He put the knife in my face.

“They cut my face. I said there was money in the drawer – it was only a small amount. I gave them my watches and jewelry and they screamed, ‘is this all you have, is that all?'”

The student paramedic, who asked to be named for fear of reprisals, said she called the police during the incident and the men left her home in Bebington after being frightened.

Unsure why she was being targeted, she wondered if the men had seen their “expensive” dogs and mistakenly believed that she had bred them.

She was home alone at the time and was grateful that her children weren’t with her, she continued. “You put a brick through my back kitchen door – it’s full glass. My little girl could have been home and eating her dinner at the table. I’m just grateful that the kids weren’t here. “

She wants to move home now and said, “It really shook me and I just want the people in Bebington to know what happened.”
