A woman was forced to hide in a bathroom with her Staffordshire Terrier while an armed gang stormed in and trashed her house.
Madison, 27, was at home at Elizabeth South, Adelaide, at 2am on Sunday when two armed men and a woman used a stereo to smash through her door.
‘They came through like animals. The stuff that they did… if they got to me I would probably be dead right now,’ she told Nine News.

A woman could be heard threatening to ‘smash a motherf***er’ if Madison came outside.
Madison’s friend Rebecca rushed over to intervene – but the group turned on her.
‘I copped a foot to the ribs, a foot to the face and a couple of punches,’ she said.
Rebecca was then dragged from the back door of the house to the front by her hair.
Madison’s friend wasn’t the only one to rush over and assist.
When neighbours intervened and called the police, the violent group fled.
Madison said she doesn’t know her attackers but police believe ‘all parties are known to each other’

‘Police believe all parties are known to each other and investigations are continuing.
