Appeal for Witnesses - Robbery - Ravensthorpe
Tuesday, 4th September, 2012
Police are appealing for witnesses following a robbery at a house in Ravensthorpe on Sunday.
Dewsbury CID officers would like to speak with anyone who has information about the incident which took place at about 10.30pm on Sunday, 2nd September.
It occurred after two men knocked on the door and then pushed their way in when it was answered by the 43-year-old male occupant.
Once inside they threatened the man and another 21-year-old man in the property with a small bladed weapon, and a baseball bat.
They then made off on foot with a small amount of cash and the 21-year-old's mobile phone, leaving the men shocked but not physically hurt.
Both suspects were described as wearing masks and Police are keen to speak to anyone who saw two men either fleeing the property or acting suspiciously outside shortly before 10.30pm.
Anyone who has information should contact Dewsbury CID on the 101 non emergency number.
Information can also be given anonymously to CrimeStoppers on 0800 555 111.
