Hull Mum's Horror As Masked Knifemen Burst Into Home And Slash Boyfriend As Toddler Sleeps

A family have told of the terrifying moment three men armed with knives and an axe burst into their home and demanded to know where "the drugs are".

Levi Mattinson, 22, and her partner Billy Wilkinson, 21, were getting ready to go to bed when the men used an axe to barge down the front door of their east Hull flat.

They slashed Mr Wilkinson with their knives on his arms and back before ransacking the place looking for drugs they wrongly believed were there.

Miss Mattinson, whose three-year-old son was asleep in bed at the time, said: "I still can't get over what happened.

'We heard banging coming from outside'

"It's really affected my little boy despite him not actually seeing anything as he was in his room, but he keeps asking me if the bad men are going to kick our door in again.
