Tuesday 30 October, 2012.
Huddersfield CID are appealing for witnesses to a robbery in Huddersfield on the 29 October.
The robbery took place at around 9:30pm at a house on Brendon Drive in Birkby.
A 60-year old man was in the house at the time when there was a knock at the front door. The victim answered and was confronted by the suspect who walked into the house demanding cash.
The victim called out to his wife who called the police, at which point three further suspects entered the house.
The suspects made further threats towards the victims but left, taking car keys to a black Ford Kuga which was then stolen.
Neither victim was harmed during the robbery.
The suspects were four white men, believed to be in their twenties and between 5'10" and 6' tall. All were wearing dark clothing.
One was of medium build and had a black and white checked scarf over his face.
A second was of medium build and was carrying a Stanley knife.
The third suspect was of similar build, had a southern accent and was also carrying a knife.
The fourth suspect could not be described.
Enquiries are ongoing and any witnesses or anyone with information should contact DC Divek Ubhi at Huddersfield CID via 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
