Police in Huddersfield are appealing for witnesses after a man had a knife held to his throat during a robbery.

The male victim was walking home at around 11.30pm on Sunday, November 30 when he was approached from behind by two suspects.

The first man grabbed his shoulder, pushed him against a wall and held a knife to his throat, demanding his property.

The second man searched his right pocket and the victim handed over his property and watched the men walk away before running home and calling the police.

The first man was black, in his early 20s, around six feet one tall, of slim build and with a local accent. He was wearing a waist length black padded coat with the hood up and black material covering the bottom half of his face.

The second man was lighter skinned than the other suspect, in his early 20’s, 5 feet 11 to 6 feet tall, with a local accent and wearing a similar coat to the one described above.

DC Richard Brooke, of Kirklees Robbery team, said: “The victim was left very shaken and we are keen to trace these two men as soon as possible. If anyone has any information about this incident, please contact the Robbery team at Kirklees CID on 101 or you can ring Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.”
