A FAMILY were showered with glass in Cofton Hackett when a man smashed the window of their car while they were still in it.

It happened between 4pm and 5pm last Thursday, October 1.

The family in the silver Ford Focus were followed by a silver Toyota people carrier along Groveley Lane, towards Barnt Green.

The Toyota overtook the Focus and pulled in front, causing it to stop.

Three men got out and one approached the Focus, punching the driver’s window, smashing the glass and showering those inside – including children.

The men then got back in the Toyota and drove off.

Fortunately no-one was injured in the attack.

Officers from Hagley and Rubery Safer Neighbourhood Team now want anyone who witnessed it or anyone with any information should email
