West Midlands Police are investigating after two men were injured when three offenders broke into a Kings Norton home while the family were in.
The incident happened at around 9.30pm on Saturday 5th August in Grange Farm Drive. The male householder and a friend were assaulted and suffered minor injuries.
It is reported that one of the offenders chased a woman and two small children upstairs during the family’s ordeal.
A police spokeswoman could not confirm if the assailants were carrying weapons but said that a metal bar with a cord wrist strap had been recovered.
Keys were grabbed, along with a mobile phone. However, the keys – for the family’s second car, not their better first car – were recovered nearby a short time later.
Officers have spoken to a number of witnesses and have now released a CCTV image of two men they would like to speak to in connection with what happened.
Anyone with information is asked to call West Midlands Police on 101 quoting crime reference number 20BW/166289D/17
