POLICE are hunting three men who broke into a Hagley home armed with machetes, crow bars and wooden bats and attacked one of the occupants.

The terrifying incident happened between 1.15am and 1.25am on Saturday July 15 at a property in Worcester Road.

After gaining access through the front door, which may have been unlocked, the offenders attacked the occupant of a downstairs bedroom off the main hall and dragged the terrified resident into the hallway before they were disturbed by other occupants in the property.

The men, who promptly made their escape through the front door, were white, aged in their 20s, and wearing dark clothing and face coverings.

One of them was over six feet tall and the other two were shorter.

Anyone with any information about the incident is urged to contact West Mercia Police on 101, quoting police incident number: 067-S-150717.
