Imran Aslam, from Dudley, was one of four men who attacked a couple in their own home as their children were in the bath in July 2011 - but he has refused to cooperate with the police investigation into the incident.
Det Cons Lindsey Coleman, of West Mercia Police, said his lack of cooperation meant the reason behind the raid, and the identity of his partners, was still unknown.
She welcomed his eight-year prison sentence.
This incident was a terrifying ordeal for the family.
The gang were extremely aggressive, showing no regard for the fact that there were young children in the house and it has had a long term impact upon them all.

It has been a long and complex inquiry and while we still don’t know the full background to this incident, because Aslam has not spoken to us about that, we hope it gives the family some peace of mind that he has received a lengthy jail sentence.
Fortunately offences of this nature are extremely rare but when they do happen we will use all the resources available to us to bring offenders to justice.

Redditch Borough Council have defended their position after plans for Redditch United to build a new £3.3million stadium were blocked.
The council have said they hope to hear from Chris Swan, who runs the club, at a committee meeting next week.
Mr Swann has been invited to attend the Council's Overview and Scrutiny Committee on Nov 4 to afford him the opportunity to present his proposals to Members.
RBC considers this is the correct forum for this discussion to take place and any live debate prior to the meeting would pre-empt this discussion.
Redditch Borough Council have explained some of the reasons for blocking the proposals:
- The area of land the new stadium would lie on is designated to public or green space.
- Restrictive covenants are placed on the land which the plans would breach.
- The plans would require the council to put up some of the costs, and should they rise, the council would bear the cost.
- The council may need to fund preliminary work and surveys ahead of the project.
- Council officers were put off by the size of the project.
- Maintenance costs are not factored in.
- The land values advised by both sides are very far apart.
The future of Redditch United is unclear, after a council has blocked plans for a new multi-million pound stadium.
Plans had been drawn up to replace the current ground with a £3.3million stadium nearby. The plans were part of the development proposal drawn up by Chris Swan and his team, who rescued the club from administration in 2011.
The club say a new stadium is necessary to enable progression up the league ladder, and provide facilities for teams in the community.
Multi-million pound plans to build a new football stadium in Redditch have been blocked by the borough council, raising fears for the club's future.
Redditch United have been playing in the borough for 122 years, and had lodged an application to build a £3.3million new home near its current base in Bromsgrove Road.
The club was rescued from administration in 2011 by businessman Chris Swan, who drew up the proposal as part of plans to develop the club.
This included expanding the number of junior, ladies and disabled teams on offer, as well as boosting the first team's chances of making conference league status.
But the council rejected the plans - making future expansion more difficult.
Councillors have now urged club bosses to consider redeveloping the current stadium instead of moving.
