Teenager Andre Shoy-Stone has been jailed for his part in a burglary where a baby was threatened with a TaserWiki Commons

A hysterical mother pleaded with burglars not to electrocute her baby daughter with a Taser during a raid at her London home.

The 28-year-old awoke in the middle of the night to find two men by her bed, one of whom was holding her daughter, who had been lying in bed next to her, while the other was pointing a Taser at the seven month-old.

She screamed and pleaded with the suspects not to harm her daughter as other men rampaged through her west London home looking for items to steal in September last year.

The men demanded to know the location of someone she knew but when the victim said she didn't know them the suspect threatened to taser the child.

The terrifying ordeal ended when the suspects grabbed a necklace and mobile phone before making off, having handed the victim back her baby.
