Robbers hit a man over the head with a wooden object during a mugging in Huddersfield.

The 34-year-old victim was walking through a car park on Luck Lane in Paddock when he was confronted by two men who grabbed him and demanded any cash he had on him.

The victim handed over £30 before he was hit over the head and the culprits ran off.

They were described as two white men. One was around 5ft 11ins tall, slim and with short, cropped hair. He was wearing a blue hooded top.

The other was 5ft 9ins tall, slim and wore a black hooded top.

Any witnesses to the robbery, at 6.30pm last Wednesday, are being asked to call Detective Constable Marie Whitehouse via 101.
