Andre Shoy-Stone grabbed the woman's seven-month-old baby and demanded to be told the address of someone she knew. When she said she didn't know, her daughter was threatened with a Taser.

Detective Constable Nick Howard said: "This was a horrifying incident - there can be nothing more terrifying for a mother than her child being threatened in that way.

"Shoy-Stone was part of the group who ransacked the property but, despite extensive enquiries, other suspects remain outstanding and we would urge anyone with information to come forward."
