A 52-year-old woman and a 9-year-old child were assaulted overnight after five men forced entry into their Raleighs Road home via the back door.
The males who were believed to be armed with edged weapons, assaulted the nine-year-old child before they demanded money and assaulted the 51-year-old woman. A 16-year-old boy who lived on the premises ran outside for help.
The child was uninjured whilst the woman needed to be transported to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
The offenders fled from the scene after they stole a gaming console and a mobile phone.
They are described as being African in appearance and likely to be between the ages of 16-20 years of age.
