West Midlands Police have asked for the publics help to locate a male who is wanted for questioning after a house was set on fire while a woman and two children were inside.
The incident happened in Northfield on Monday morning (13th April).
Detectives want to speak to David White in connection with the outrageous attack that happened in Farren Road just before 08:30 hours.
Thankfully, the woman and the two children were able to escape from the property before it was engulfed in flames.
34-year-old White is suspected of gaining access to the property and setting fire to house furnishings before leaving the premises and fleeing from the area.

WE NEED YOUR HELP.Here at Emergency Services News, we aim to tell you stories that the mainstream media are not interested in reporting. Whilst the MSM love to berate and ridicule the emergency services, who is there to report on the realities of serving on the front line?
Emergency Services News is currently a loss-making entity. But our team of volunteers, all former emergency services personnel, do not do it for the money.
We do it because we are sick and tired of the mainstream media constantly trying to undermine the men and women who put their lives on the line to keep you and your family safe.
How many MSM journalists who speak ill of the emergency services have actually dared to don the uniform and risk their own lives to save the life of a complete stranger?
