A gang of masked men with knives “threatened and demanded money” from a woman in her home while her three-year-old watched on.
The woman who lives in Kingsley and does not wish to be named, was at home with her child and ex-partner when six or seven men with knives entered her house in search of cash.
The incident took place in the evening on Wednesday, October 26.
A Northamptonshire police spokeswoman said: “We can confirm that we received a report at a property... at 7.15pm on Wednesday, October 26. An investigation is now underway.”
