A chihuahua was stolen at knifepoint on Saturday night after three men burst into a family home.

The men broke into a house off Sevenoaks Way in Leesons Hill, Orpington, at about 8.45pm

A man, 42, was punched repeatedly and held at knifepoint downstairs while two other men ransacked the property.

The burglars, aged between 25 and 35, took a small safe, containing jewellery and one of the family’s three dogs.

The owner said: “The dog is one year old and he is going to be really nervous.

“He only weighs three and half pounds, if he does not eat he is going to be really hyper.

“I cannot sleep. I am desperate to have him back safe. One of my other dogs keeps on crying.”
