Hunt for street attackers

DETECTIVES are looking for thieves who hit a man over the head and stole his phone.

The victim was walking alone, listening to music from his mobile, in Spring Hall Lane, Halifax.

He was hit over the head, knocked to the ground and kicked and punched.

His attackers searched him and took his phone. One of the suspects, said to be Asian in his late teens to early 20s, had large eyes, a pointed nose and slim jawline.

He was wearing a blue or black hooded top, with the hood pulled over a cap, and dark trousers.

The other suspects are described as Asian men.

Detectives want to speak to anyone who witnessed the attack, shortly after 7pm on Sunday, particularly anyone driving past.
