(MSS) On Tuesday evening a woman was shocked when she opened the door to her home in Berschbach: in front of her stood a man dressed in black pointing a gun at her.

The man wanted the woman's keys to the car parked outside, but when the woman said she didn't know where they were, the man grabbed her and led her up the stairs to the first floor.

The woman managed to break free from the man's grasp and ran down the stairs. Just before reaching the bottom of the stairs she was surprised by a second offender, who pushed her. She fell backwards onto the stairs and the men escaped.

The woman was taken to the hospital, but the police were unable to track down the two men, who both spoke Luxembourgish. They were described as 1.70 to 1.80 meters tall wearing black clothes, gloves and balaclavas.
