Three kids have been updated from a foster home, with police now hunting the knife-wielding dad.

Bilal Safi, Mohammed Ebrar Safi, and Mohammed Yaseen Safi – aged six, five and three – were taken from their home in Coulsdon Road, Coulsdon, south London earlier today.

The children were playing in the garden while their foster carer was in the house.

She heard footsteps nearby, turned around and saw the children’s father Imran Safi, 26.

The foster carer told police Imran threatened her with a knife and used force to take the children from the address.

They have not been seen since. The foster carer did not suffer any serious physical injuries but was left distressed.

The dad’s picture has been shared with all ports and borders in a bid to stop him travelling abroad.
