The two males wearing the ‘police’ baseball caps along with another male who is wearing a black-hooded top, each then kick the front door of the property.

The footage that was caught on CCTV inside of the property then switches to the kitchen where an occupant inside the address at the time of the incident is assaulted by two of the males.
A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police said:

“If you have any information then please call the police on 101”.

Before you go...
We need your help. As former emergency services & armed forces personnel, we pride ourselves on bringing you important, fast-moving and breaking news stories which are free from the negative bias which is often directed at the emergency services by some sections of the mainstream media.
One of the reasons we started 'Emergency Services News' was because we became tired of reading badly informed stories about the emergency services which seemed only ever to highlight negative aspects of the job.
We want to be the unheard voice of the remarkable men and women who serve in the emergency services, NHS and armed forces. And with around 500k page views each month, we are getting there!
As income from ads, the mainstay source of income for most publishers, continues to decline; we need the help of our readers.
