Appeal: Robbery, Stutley Grove, Bradley.
Thursday 4 October, 2012.
Huddersfield CID are appealing for witnesses after a 70-year old man was robbed at his home in Bradley on Saturday 29 September.
At around 3:45am the 70-year old victim was asleep in the living room of his home on Stutley Grove. He was woken by the sound of a disturbance in the kitchen.
As he entered the kitchen to investigate, the victim was confronted by three men who had broken into the kitchen through a window.
The 70-year old was grabbed by the suspects and forced into the living room. The suspects then searched the house, leaving with two wooden boxes that fortunately 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 twenties. One was around 5'6" tall, thin and with a small moustache.
A second was around 6'3" tall and slim. All three wore dark clothing with hooded tops with the hoods up.
Enquiries into the robbery are ongoing and police have arrested two men in connection with the crime. Both are currently on bail pending further enquiries.
Any witnesses, or anyone with information is asked to contact DC 4996 Gemma Smith at Huddersfield CID via 101, on 01484 436714 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
