Police have released CCTV footage after a "terrifying ordeal" saw two men break into a house in Penge and threaten the person inside with a firearm.

A number of expensive items were stolen from the property, and police are now hoping CCTV images will be able to identify the two men connected with the incident.

Officers were called to St Hugh’s Road, SE20, Bromley on Saturday, 2 May to reports of an aggravated burglary involving firearms.

Two men had broken into a property at around 11:30pm, and then threatened the person inside the house with a firearm.

Property stolen from the address included a black bag, two hard drives, a gold chain, a laptop stand and £300 in cash.

The first man is described as black, 5ft 8ins tall, aged in his 20s, wearing a dark green puffa-style jacket, black jeans and black trainers with a silver metal piece on the laces. He has a black bag on his back.

The second man is described as black, 6ft tall, aged in his mid-20s, wearing a blue puffa-style jacket, blue jeans, blue and white sole trainers.

Detective Constable Dean Roberts, who is leading the investigation, said: “This was a terrifying ordeal for the victim who was sitting in his home when two men came in and threatened him with a firearm.

"If you know who these men are, or know what happened that day, please get in contact with police.

“Incidents like this will not be tolerated and we will continue to crack down on individuals who think it is acceptable to frighten and steal from others.”
