Locals said the Moustafas had lived at the address in quiet residential street Belle Walk, in the well-heeled Moseley suburb, for three years.
One said: ‘The police came from nowhere. I thought it was an anti-terror raid at first.
‘I’ve lived here for 25 years and I’ve never seen anything like this before.
‘I just feel enormously for both families. Children have been left without a mum.’
