Police were called just after 2.30pm on Tuesday to an address in Oakland Road, Handsworth, after three masked intruders forced their way inside.

The offenders threatened the family, before they were tied up in the bathroom.

The offenders then search the home and stole electrical items and personal belongings.

The victims were shaken, but not injured, and are being support by police officers.

West Midlands Police has now launched an investigation into the robbery and is calling for any witnesses to contact them.

Anyone with information can call West Midlands Police on 101, quoting log number 1294 of February 11.
