A MAN feared he was going to be shot after being confronted by armed raiders – in his bath.
One of the raiders burst into his bathroom and threatened him with a weapon wrapped in a green towel.
The man pointed the weapon and shouted: “Weed or money.”
The 29-year-old victim said he didn’t have drugs or cash and the robber smashed him in the face with the weapon, breaking his nose and causing it to bleed.
The robber then threatened to “blast” him, leading the victim to believe he was going to be shot.
During the attack two accomplices searched his bedroom.
The robbers made more demands and threats during a terrifying 10-minute ordeal.
The raiders eventually escaped with various items including watches, designer coats, sunglasses, DVDs and a music system.
The raid happened at a house in Bank Street, off Stocks Bank Road, Battyeford, Mirfield, at 9.35am on Wednesday, November 14 – but police have only just released information about the crime.
It is understood the victim had just returned home after a night shift.
He had left the front door unlocked but on a security chain.
He was in the bath when he heard the raiders force their way in and run upstairs.
The three men, all wearing gloves, drove off in a white Ford Transit van in the direction of Nab Lane.
Police have appealed for anyone with information to contact Dewsbury CID on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
