GUNMEN forced their way into a Longwood home to steal a luxury car.
The terrifying incident happened between 7.40pm and 7.50pm on Thornhill Road on Saturday night.
Two men burst into the house, threatened the 49-year-old man with a handgun, tied him up and then drove off in his Audi A6 Quattro estate which was found abandoned on Almondbury Bank about 90 minutes later.
The car was also spotted at 8.20pm heading along Leeds Road and St Andrew's Road.
A witness who later saw the Audi being left on Almondbury Bank watched a man walk from that vehicle to a waiting white Honda Civic containing a number of passengers.
Detectives are keen to speak to anybody who may have seen the Honda in the Almondbury or Longwood areas on Saturday night.
Both robbery suspects were described as African-Caribbean, aged between 20 and 30, and 5ft 8in to 5ft 10in tall. They wore dark jackets with hoods and had scarves covering the lower part of their faces.
One of the scarves was grey with a checked pattern.
Both spoke with local accents.
Acting Det Insp Parr, of Huddersfield CID, said: "We believe this was a targeted incident and not a random attack.
"These sorts of offences are extremely rare, as is the use of handguns on the streets of Huddersfield."

* Two women pensioners were robbed just yards from one another as they got off a bus in Almondbury.
Detectives are now trying to find out whether the women were victims of two different attackers or if the same youth targeted both.
The friends, aged 73 and 69, were returning from playing bingo in Huddersfield at about 10.20pm on Saturday night.
The bus was heading along Southfield Road.
The first woman had just got off near Saxton Place when her bag was immediately ripped from her grasp and she was dragged to the floor.
Moments later, her friend got off at the next stop near De Lacy Avenue.
An attacker also grabbed her bag, but fled with the shoulder strap.
Realising his mistake, he returned, pushed the woman over and escaped with the bag.
The women suffered cuts and grazes but were not seriously hurt.
Acting Det Insp Andy Parr said: "It is very unusual to get two thefts like this, where the thieves use the same method to go for the same sort of property.
"On both occasions it would appear to be a young man that has done it."
The first suspect is only 5ft, slim and wore dark clothing including a hooded sweatshirt.
The second is a white teenager aged 15 to 18, 5ft 5in to 5ft 8in tall and slim.
He wore a navy- coloured hooded top, jeans and trainers.
He fled towards the Highlands Estate.
Detectives want to speak to a man who helped the second woman.
They also need information from a group of youngsters who were standing at the bottom of Southfield Road.
Witnesses should contact 01484 436685.
