Armed robbers break into Oxford house

Three masked men armed with what was believed to be a gun and a machete broke into a house in Oxford and threatened five people, police said.

They forced their way into a house in Cutteslowe just before 1900 GMT on Wednesday and threatened the five occupants, demanding money.

This led to an altercation which spilled out onto the street outside.

One of the victims drove away in a black Mercedes and the robbers left the scene.

The men are described as white and in their late teens. The first two suspects were about 5ft 8in and of average build.

The third robber was about the same height but of thin build.
