Appeal, Robbery, Fartown

    Detectives in Huddersfield are appealing for witnesses after a robbery in Fartown. 

    The incident took place on Wednesday 3 August between 11pm and 12 midnight at a property on Spaines Road, Fartown in Huddersfield. 

    The suspect knocked on the door of the house and asked if they had ordered any food - five other suspects then entered the property holding weapons and demanding money. 

    The victim, a man in his 30's was punched and kicked before the suspects made off with a large amount of cash, mobile phone, jewellery and credit cards. 

    The first suspect is described as a white male, skinny build, around 35-years-old, black hair and stubble on his face. He was wearing a short black jacket and had a t-shirt underneath. 

    Three of the other suspects are described as tall and slim West Indian males. 

    Detective Constable Andy Clayton, of Huddersfield CID, said: "This was a terrifying ordeal for the victim after these men entered their home." 

    "I would like to appeal to members of the public to come forward with any information if you saw anything suspicious in the area on this night or recognise the descriptions of the suspects."
