Masked men in drugs raid at kids’ party

Sunday Mirror - - FRONT PAGE - BY KAREN ROCKETT

THREE knife- wield­ing masked raiders ru­ined a chil­dren’s birth­day party when they burst into a house look­ing for drugs.

The thugs de­manded cash and cannabis from the ter­ri­fied par­ents.

Po­lice be­lieve they broke into the wrong ad­dress.

A boy was cel­e­brat­ing his 10th birth­day when the trio charged through the back door and into the lounge on Fri­day evening.

His dad, 55, who asked not to be named, said: “We had just sung happy birth­day and blown out the can­dles. The men were say­ing, ‘ Where is the weed, where is the money?’

“We have been up all night just sit­ting on the sofa with a ham­mer.”

The men fled the house in Cat­ton Grove, Nor­wich, with a mo­bile phone.
