Detectives are appealing for information following a robbery in Heckmondwike.
The incident happened between 7 and 8pm on Sunday 12 February on Bevor Crescent where five suspects forced entry into a house.

They stole keys to the victim's van and left the property, driving off in the white Ford Transit van.
The suspects were described as:
Black or mixed race male, stocky build, 6ft; he was wearing a balaclava, black bomber jacket which had a small logo on it and also dark coloured trousers.
The second suspect was described as Black or mixed race male, big build, also wearing a balaclava and dark coloured top.
Another was described as a white male, big build, wearing a grey coloured jacket and again a balaclava.
The fourth was described as an Asian male, 5ft 6", slim build and he was wearing a balaclava and a grey jacket.
Detective Oliver Coates, of Huddersfield CID, said: "Thankfully the victim of this incident was left uninjured, but understandably very distressed by these suspects forcing entry into his home.
"I would like to appeal to members of the public who may have been in the area and may have witnessed anything suspicious or recognise any of the these descriptions to come forward and assist us with our investigation.
