At around 4.00am on Thursday 18th June 2015 offenders used a stepladder to climb onto the roof of a property in Dukes Kiln Drive, Gerrards Cross to enter via an upstairs window.

Once inside the property the offenders confronted a woman who was in the house at the time and threatened another woman who was in the house with what appeared to be a gun and forced her to hand over jewellery and cash.

The men then made off.

The victims called the police. Ambulance staff also attended and treated the women at the scene for minor injuries.
