TWO brothers were beaten up and threatened with a knife in a robbery at Sheepridge.
The brothers - both Asian - were walking on Wiggan Lane in Sheepridge at midday yesterday, when they were approached by the robber.
He asked the younger brother, aged 24, to hand over his mobile phone and money. The man refused and the robber lunged at the two brothers with a knife he was carrying.
The elder brother, aged 26, tried to push the attacker away, but the man then started punching both brothers around the head and chest.
The attacker was then joined by four friends. After a scuffle, the brothers managed to run away.
The younger victim noticed his mobile phone was missing, but was unsure whether it had been dropped during the fight or if it had been stolen.
The attacker is described as a man of mixed race, with light coloured skin.
He was 6ft 3ins tall, had a slim build, a clear complexion and was clean shaven. His eyebrows had lines shaved into them and he had very short, cropped black hair.
He was wearing a black hooded top and dark tracksuit bottoms.
Anyone with information about the incident should contact Huddersfield CID on 01484 436680.
