Three burglars who punched a woman in the face and took her phone during a break-in this afternoon are being hunted by police.
Police were called to the house in Birchwood Avenue, Hackbridge, after the woman was assaulted just before 3pm.
It is not clear whether the burglars broke into the house while the woman was still in or if she arrived after they broke in.
As the men left the property one of them punched the woman in the face and took her mobile phone.
Police are hunting three men, one is black, two are white. Officers are using police dogs to help with the search.
If you saw anything or have any other information, you can call police on 101 or the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
