Police officers are appealing for witnesses to robbery that took place in broad daylight.

On Thursday October 24, at 2.30pm, two asian males approached a 20-year-old man on Free School Lane, Halifax.

They attacked him and took his mobile phone before running off towards Bell Hall.

The two suspects are described as between 5’10” and 6’ tall and both of slim build.

One of the men was wearing a burgundy tracksuit top and both of them had grey tracksuit bottoms.

CCTV footage shows two health professionals in the area at the time who the police think may have seen the attack.

Anyone with information about the incident should contact Sgt Terry O’Keeffe at Calderdale CID on 01422 337 029
