Dressed as police officers, this is the shocking moment a group of burglars force their way into a home before carrying out a vicious raid on the occupants.
In horrific video footage released by the Metropolitan Police today, a gang of four men can be seen preparing for the raid which took place in Edgware, north London on August 10 last year.
And at 7.20pm they burst into the property shouting 'police' as they enter before threatening the victims inside with weapons.
Soon after they enter another victim approaches the property before he is sprayed in the face with an unknown substance, according to the force.
The burglars then punch and kick the man before he is taken upstairs and put with the other victims.
They then carry out an untidy search of the premises before fleeing in the same vehicle they arrived in.
A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said: 'The second victim was taken to a north London hospital by the London Ambulance Service. His injuries were not life-threatening.
'The suspects are described as black males who were wearing dark clothing. One of the suspects was wearing a hi-vis jacket.
'No arrests have been made. Enquiries continue'.
The Metropolitan Police today released video footage of the shock incident in the hopes it will encourage people with information to come forward.
The footage shows both the moment the burglars enter the property, and the moment they tackle one of the occupants to the ground.
If you can help the police you are asked to call 101 quoting crime reference number 6449/10AUG.
