POLICE believe robbers who forced a couple out of a Huddersfield pub may have struck again.
A masked gang - one members had a machete - raided the Woolpack pub on Deighton Road, Deighton, on Monday night and forced manager Brian Midgley to hand over cash.
Mr Midgley, 48, and wife Lynne had only been in the pub for a week, but have quit as a result of the robbery.
Now, police believe the same gang may be responsible for a robbery involving a pizza delivery driver.
The 49-year-old victim got a call to go to a house in Riddings Rise, Sheepridge, to deliver pizza, along with chicken and chips, at 10.30pm on Wednesday.
He knocked on the door, but there was no reply. He was then confronted in the street by a gang of four men.
One carried a large knife or machete almost 2ft long.
They stole the food and a small amount of cash.
The man with the knife is African-Caribbean, aged 20 to 25, around 5ft 9in tall and slim.
His face was partially covered.
His three accomplices also had their faces covered, but one is African-Caribbean and the other two are white.
Sgt Tim O'Sullivan, of Huddersfield police, said: "Taking into consideration the weapon and the descriptions of the robbers, we believe the same gang may be responsible for Monday night's raid at the Woolpack.
"If this is the case, it may be they live in that area and people may well have seen them roaming around and know who they are."
