Shocking footage reveals the moment a group of men storm a family home in the night and smash up three cars.

CCTV shows the men pulling up outside the property on Alum Rock Road, in Ward End, in the early hours of Thursday (22 August) before attacking the vehicles with bars.

Despite car alarms going off, including flashing lights, the vandals were able to cause thousands of pounds worth of damage before fleeing.

Mohammed Ali, who is the owner of one of the cars, said he cannot understand why he was targeted and has not slept since the attack.

I am heartbroken. I’m in shock. I’ve lived here nearly 30 years and never had a problem. I know all the neighbours. I have no idea why they did this. I don’t think I have upset anybody. I just go home, work and back home again. I do not bother anyone. They’ve caused thousands of pounds worth of damage. I only bought the car a few months ago

– Mohammed Ali

Two other cars, one which belongs to Mr Ali’s sister and the other which belongs to his friend, also had their windows smashed in.

No one was hurt in the incident.

West Midlands Police are now investigating and are asking for anyone with information to get in touch.
