Police are appealing for information after a man was mugged by a gang in Huddersfield.

The victim was walking along Great Northern Street when he was approached by three men who initially asked for a cigarette before asking what was in his bag.

One demanded his wallet and when the victim refused, said he had a knife.

The victim handed over cash and the trio escaped onto Hillhouse Lane towards Bradford Road.

The three men police want to speak to are described as around 20-years-old, white and about 5ft 8ins tall.

One had two to three days-worth of stubble.

Anyone with information about the mugging, which happened between 5.25am and 5.30am on Friday, should call Detective Constable Peter Usher in Huddersfield CID on 01484 436714.
