A TEENAGER woke to find four robbers inside his home in Ragg Avenue in Namadi Heights yesterday morning.

Justin Watkins, 16, said he woke up when he heard his bedroom door slam shut.

"One of the men was coming out of my room, he had my iPod and other things. My mum and cousin, Bradley Hatch were asleep in their rooms," said Mr Watkins.

"Two of them were carrying the TV, when I shouted, they dropped the TV and ran. By this time, one of them had started my mother's car.

"The three others joined the one in the car on the road when he reversed out of the driveway. They were able to take some jewellery and cash.

"I was able to see their faces. I can recognise three of them if I saw them again."

Young Mr Watkins said the four men were holding pinch bars and cane knives.

Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro confirmed four men entered the house of Carol Watkins and after stealing jewellery and cash, fled in her company vehicle.

Ms Naisoro said police were still looking for the red Hyundai Elantra registered HB 924 taken by the suspects.
