DETECTIVES are investigating two gang attacks in Halifax last night.

A 30-year-old man was approached by eight asian men on Horton Street at 10.15pm who demanded he hand over his mobile.

When he refused, the gang - aged between 15 and 20 - assaulted him, injuring his face.

At 10.20pm, a 43-year-old man was attacked by a group of asian men on Savile Park Road. Again, he suffered face injuries.

Anyone with information about either assault is being asked to call Detective Constable Marcus Southwell in Calderdale CID on 01422 337089 or Crimestoppers, where information can be passed on anonymously, on 0800 555111.
