Two teenagers were told to hand over their mobile phones at knife point in Brighouse


Detectives are appealing for information after two incidents within half an hour of each other in Brighouse last week in which demands were made at knifepoint for teenagers’ mobile phones.

Officers are linking an attempted robbery and a robbery which happened between 8.25pm and 8.55pm on Tuesday, 5 September, in the Carr Green Recreation Ground area. In both incidents a group of up to six male suspects have approached the victims.

The victims were able to provide descriptions of three of the suspects with an e-fit produced of one of the men.

The first suspect is described as white, aged in his early 20s, around 6ft 2ins tall, with a ginger perm which was around 2ins in length. He was wearing a grey hoodie.

The second suspect is described as around 5ft tall and was wearing a black hooded top, with a balaclava or scarf over his face.

The third suspect – pictured in the e-fit image – is described as Asian, around 19-years-old, approximately 5ft 10ins tall, of stocky build with a round face and large nose with dark, brushed down hair. He was wearing a grey hoodie with the hood pulled up.

Anyone who witnessed either of these offences or who saw a group matching the suspects’ descriptions in the vicinity of these incidents are asked to call Calderdale CID via 101 or independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
