West Midlands Police released this CCTV image

Detectives have released pictures of a man they want to speak to after a disabled woman and her children were threatened at gunpoint outside their home.

The woman and her two children were getting into their car, parked on their drive in Tumbler Grove, when a man approached them demanding to know where the money was.

He pulled out a handgun, leaving the family 'visibly shaken', before neighbours noticed what was happening and intervened.

The suspect, described as black, six feet tall and of slim build, then ran up the road and got into the passenger side of a white Toyota Yaris hybrid before driving off towards Wednesfield Road.

He was wearing a hi-vis vest and a bandana across his face.

Detective Sergeant Chris Jones, from West Midlands Police CID, said: “The young family were visibly shaken and upset by the ordeal which happened in broad daylight.

“A number of enquires have been carried out in the area and we are hoping someone will recognise this man and contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”

The incident happened on Wednesday, February 21 at about 10.35am.
