This week police released an appeal for information after a family were threatened with a machete inside their Hall Green home on Monday (29 May).
The appeal has been shared hundreds of times across social media and in the local news, and since its release West Midlands Police received plenty of information.
Officers arrested 32-year-old James Smith earlier today and he has been charged with aggravated burglary, possession of a bladed article and ABH.
Smith of Marlborough Gardens, Malvern has been remanded into custody and is due to appear at Birmingham Magistrates court tomorrow morning (3 June).
Thank you to everyone who has shared, liked and commented on the appeal and those who have got in contact to tell officers what they know.
Police are still appealing to trace a second man and anyone with information about his identity, or about the incident in general is urged to contact DC Tom Lyons on [email protected]
