Detective Sergeant Mark Beniston, who is investigating the incident, said:

“I would like to hear from anyone who was in the area and saw the incident take place, the suspects loitering before the incident or them making off from the scene.

“If you were in the Tamworth Road area and saw a group of three men running off, or getting into a vehicle, please call and speak to us. Maybe you saw a vehicle waiting in the area? What you saw may not have seemed significant to you at the time but it could prove incredibly useful to our investigation.”

As well as the balaclavas, the men were also described as wearing dark clothing.

Anyone with information is asked to call 101 and quote incident 64 of 21 March.
