Appeal after axe-wielding gang attack at Balsall Common home

Solihull Editorial 11th Oct, 2019   0

POLICE are appealing for information following a violent burglary with an axe at a home in Balsall Common.

Three suspects forced their way into a house on Kenilworth Road just after 10.30pm on Friday September 27.

Once inside they demanded cash and attacked the homeowner with weapons including an axe and a machete.

A 36-year-old sustained serious injuries, including deep cuts to his head, leg and hand but managed to fend the suspects off and they fled empty-handed.

On the way out they may have sprayed some kind of substance, as all five people in the house at the time – including three children – had to be treated by paramedics.

CCTV enquiries revealed the suspects arrived and left in a white Porsche Cayenne, West Midlands Police says.

Images have been released by officers as part of the ongoing enquiry and anyone with information should get in contact.

The force can be contacted via Live Chat at between 8am to midnight, call 101 anytime or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. Please quote crime number 20SH/229577J/19.
