AN appeal has been launched after eight masked men carrying weapons broke into a property in Kidderminster.

Police are investigating the aggravated burglary which happened at an address at Pooles Court at around 4am this morning (December 3).

The men were carrying weapons and forced entry to the rear of the property, police said.

The gang threatened the occupants but nothing was stolen.

Police said the group also attended the address around 11pm on Wednesday but did not access the property.

Officers have identified a blue Ford Fiesta and a white Toyota Auris they believe to be involved.

The cars were seen travelling in convoy in the area around the time of the incident and arrived from the Birmingham area.

Police have asked anyone who may have witnessed the incidents, saw the cars or captured them on dash cam to get in touch and quote incident 49 of December 3.
