Man beaten and bound in own home by robbers
A man was bound and beaten in his own home by robbers who stole cash and jewellery.

The homeowner, aged in his 50s, was attacked by two men in Dulwich, south London, in September.

One of them had a firearm which he tried to use but it did not work, leading police to believe it was an imitation.

The victim was hits on the head and his feet and wrists with tied with tape before being pushed into the downstairs toilet.

The thieves are believed to have fled with a large amount of cash, as well as electricals and jewellery.

The victim was eventually able to escape and alerted his neighbours, who called police

One of the suspects is described as being 'Middle Eastern European', of slight build, in his late teens or early 20s, with dark brown skin, black hair, a black beard and a thin pointed nose. He did not appear to speak a lot of English and was repeatedly heard to say: “money, money, money”.

The second suspect is described as being an Asian man, possibly south-east Asian, of a stockier build, around 5ft 10in tall. He had short black hair and was wearing blue latex gloves.

This happened at 3.30pm i.e. broad daylight -in September and yet we are not informed until a MONTH later... pathetic- how are we supposed to take precautions when we don't know these things especially since we are not allowed to defend ourselves properly

Southwark police posted an appeal for witnesses on Twitter on 14 October.

I only know that via a post on my road's WhatsApp group.

It's possible that there were valid operational reasons for not publicising it before, but I don't know what they would be.

Does anybody know if they have caught the people involved?

Also, does anybody know how they got into the house?

Utterly dreadful. As Suesaid, how did they get in to the house?
