A manhunt is underway after screwdriver-wielding thugs threatened a mother-of-three at her home in Slough.

The incident happened at about 11pm on Friday, August 2, at a property in Bentley Road.

The victim, a 31-year-old woman, was at home with her three children when four men broke into the property.

Three of them went into her bedroom while the other one threatened her with a screwdriver and demanded cash.

She handed over her jewellery and the men then fled the property. It is believed that they also stole other jewellery from the bedroom before they left.

The thieves were all men and were wearing balaclavas and gloves. It is believed they left the scene in a dark four door car, believed to be an Audi.

Police said none of the victims suffered any injuries.
