Police in Huddersfield are appealing for witnesses to a daylight mugging in Moldgreen yesterday.

At around 8.30am,a 27-year-old woman left her home and was walking along View Street when she passed two men.

As she did so, one of the men grabbed her by the hair. The second suspect then tried to steal the victim’s handbag.

The 27-year old struggled to keep hold of her bag but was forced to release it after one of the suspects scratched her hand.

The suspects ran off with the bag which contained a purse and cash.

The suspects were described as mixed race or asian men in their late 20s. One of the men was around 6ft tall, stockily-built and wore a green tracksuit and green trainers.

The second suspect was of similar height but slimmer build, with a star tattoo on his right hand. He was wearing a black tracksuit and white trainers.

Any witnesses or anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Constable Mick Cummings at Huddersfield CID on 01484 436665 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
