A YOUNG man was attacked in his own home by thieves who escaped in the family's car.
The 19-year-old was asleep in a chair downstairs at the house on Cross Lane in Stocks- moor when he was suddenly grabbed by intruders who had crept in at 2am yesterday.
He was told to hold a black bin liner across his face so he could not see the thieves.
They then hit him in the face and stole a scooter and the car.
The black Piaggio scooter was dumped in nearby Station Road.
The car - a blue Seat Ibiza, number W604 EUB - is still missing.
The thieves also stole a CD player and games console.
Anyone with information should phone the robbery team at Huddersfield CID on 01484 436745.
