Detectives are hunting a gang who robbed a 70-year-old man in Huddersfield.

The pensioner was asleep in the living room of his home on Stutley Grove in Bradley when he was woken by the sound of a disturbance in his kitchen.

When he went to investigate, he was confronted by three men who had broken into the kitchen through a window.

He was grabbed and forced into the living room while the suspects searched the house, leaving with two wooden boxes that police say contained nothing of value.

The victim received minor injuries during the incident.

He described the suspects as three asian or mixed-race men in their 20s. One was around 5ft 6ins tall, thin and with a small moustache.

Another was 6ft 3ins tall and slim. All three wore dark clothing with hooded tops, with the hoods up.

Inquiries into the robbery are ongoing and police have arrested two men in connection with the crime.

Both are currently on bail pending further inquiries.

Any witnesses, or anyone with information about the robbery at 3.45am on Saturday, should call Detective Constable Gemma Smith at Huddersfield CID via 101 or on 01484 436714, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
