Four masked men have forced their way into a property in Kettering in what police say was a so called “Asian gold” robbery.
The residents were threatened by the gang at the house in Brecon Close on Friday and they stole a gold ring and small quantity of cash before fleeing.
Detectives say the robbers believed there were valuable items at the address.
Residents are reminded to keep their doors and windows locked, report any suspicious activity and ensure gold, jewellery and other items of significant value are locked in a secure safe if they are kept at the property.
Anyone with information can call Northamptonshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800555111.
