Four teenage boys were robbed by a man with a knife in Huddersfield.

The boys were at the back of the Rose and Crown on Northgate in Almondbury at 7.15pm on Sunday when they were approached by a man who asked for a cigarette.

They gave him one, and he left but then he came back with another man and this time threatened the boys with a knife and demanded property.

He punched one teenager when the boy refused, causing all four to hand over mobile phones and their wallets.

The first man who carried the knife was described as white, 5ft 11ins tall, and about 30. He was thin, with dark brown shaved hair and a short brown beard with no moustache, wearing a black jacket with a hood and a pair of black chinos and black or purple gloves.

The other man was white, around 30, 5ft 7ins to 5ft 11ins tall and slim to medium build. He was wearing black clothing, possibly a black body warmer with the hood up, and appeared to be under the influence of drink.
