A terrified dad says he has no idea why he's been targeted after a gang turned up in his street and threatened to kill him.
Taxi driver Majid Khaliq was at home with his parents, sister, brother-in-law, niece, wife and kids on Sunday when the men tried to break into his property.
He told how he was forced to lock his front door to prevent the men getting inside the house after they demanded that he went outside to confront them.
Mr Khaliq says it was completely unprovoked and he has no idea why the men turned up at his home.
The 39-year-old told Stoke-on-Trent Live : “At first I opened the door but then I had to lock it, I thought they were going to break the door down.
"They were saying they were going to kill me. Twenty men were coming towards me with the intent to do damage.

"My daughter rang the police and I was lucky my brother-in-law was here at the time too. They were there for 10-minutes and were shouting at me to come outside but we were inside waiting for the police.
"I was very scared. My niece who is only four months was at the house at the time and she was crying. All of the family was terrified.
“The men all turned up for the same reason, they wanted to batter me but I don't know why. By the time the police got there, the men had left.”
The taxi driver, who is dad to three boys and two girls, says he has not left the house alone since the incident happened.
And he has revealed that he is also struggling to sleep at night in case the gang come back.
Mr Khaliq added: “I’m not able to go to work because I don’t know what might happen, it’s having a massive impact on me and my family. I can’t afford to pay my children’s dinner money."
“I can’t step outside, it’s been traumatic not just for me but for my family too, it’s not fair. I want the police to criminalise them and lock them up.
“I’m having to send my wife out to get the kids from school but she is scared too."
A Staffordshire Police spokesman said that officers were alerted to the incident on Sunday.
They added: "We were called out to a dispute but when officers arrived the group had left the scene."
