Appeal: Attempted Robbery, Woodhead Road, Berry Brow, Huddersfield.
Saturday 26 May, 2012.
Huddersfield CID are appealing for witnesses to an attempted robbery on Woodhead Road in the Berry Brow area on Wednesday (23 May).
At around 3:30pm a 15-year old boy was waiting to be collected from school when he was approached by two teenage boys.
One of the boys demanded the victim's phone, pushing him against a wall before trying to go through the 15-year old's pockets. The second suspect was acting as a look out.
The suspects ran off when the victim's relative arrived to pick him up.
Nothing was stolen.
The suspects were two white boys aged 16 or 17 and around 5'11" tall. The main suspect was of medium build, had short brown hair and blue eyes. He was wearing a purple t-shirt, a grey vest and navy blue tracksuit bottoms.
The second suspect was skinny, spotty and wore a grey Nike Baseball cap and a white Adidas tracksuit top with blue stripes.
Any witnesses are asked to contact DS Ian Thornes at Huddersfield CID via 101.
