A search has been launched for a missing Bulldog puppy who was stolen from his owner at knifepoint.

Spot, who is just three-months-old, was taken by two men in Orpington, southeast London, just before 9am on Tuesday, March 3.

The puppy was being walked by his owner's stepfather, a man in his early 30s, when the two men got out of a white Mercedes CLA sport and produced a knife.

The driver threatened the owner, before taking the puppy away from him, Kent Live reports.

The suspects were last seen on the A20 at Fiveways.

Police enquiries reveal the car was last known to be in the Canning Town and Stratford areas.
