Police are investigating after a father was attacked by a group of men in the street as he carried his baby daughter in his arms.
The attack happened on Friday night on the Falcon Lodge Estate in Sutton Coldfield.
The 24-year-old was walking along Glover Road at 9.30pm whilst carrying his 18-month-old daughter.
He was approached by three men who started punching him in what is described as an unprovoked attack.
"Fortunately the child was not injured and her dad was not left seriously hurt. However, following the assault, it was found the child’s coat had been cut or slashed."
“Unfortunately we don’t have descriptions of the men, other than they were dressed in dark clothing, as the man didn’t get a good look at them while trying to shield his daughter."
Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
