A man posing as a delivery driver stormed into a woman’s house and tied her up before fleeing with £125,000 of jewellery. 

The terrified victim, a woman in her 60s, answered the door to her East Barnet home shortly after 9am on January 26 and was confronted with her attacker.

The suspect shoved the woman into the house, struck her with her a black handgun before tying her hands behind her back with tape and cable ties. He then forced her upstairs 

The suspect stole three expensive items of jewellery including a £35,000 diamond-encrusted Cartier white gold bangle, £15,000 Cartier earrings and a £75,000 Tiffany diamond ring.
