THREE masked men broke into a Bromsgrove property and threatened those living there with weapons before leaving empty handed.
Police think the trio – who targeted the home in Railway Walk at 11.15pm on January 19 – had got the wrong house.
DC Andrew Baxter said: “We do not know why they chose this house, though it is possible that they were looking for drugs.”
He added it was a frightening experience for the residents and appealed to the public for their help in bringing the three men to justice.
Witnesses or anyone with any information should call 101 or Crimestoppers 0800 555 111.
