While Alli suffered a minor facial injury, others were unharmed but shaken by the ordeal.
A police spokesperson told the daily, “Police were called at approximately 00:35hrs on Wednesday, 13 May to reports of a robbery at a residential address in Barnet. Two males gained entry to the property and stole items of jewellery, including watches, before fleeing.
“One male occupant of the property, aged in his 20s, suffered a minor facial injury after being assaulted. He did not require hospital treatment.”
