A WOMAN battled bravely back when robbers raided her taxi office.
Lisa Traynor, 23, reacted angrily when the three men walked into Abbey Taxis on Savile Street in Milnsbridge at 11.10am on Tuesday.
But she ended up with a fractured jaw when she fought back against her attackers.
One stood in front of her and another behind her and demanded money.
When she said there was no cash in the office, one of the thugs hit her in the face.
She swung a punch back, but missed.
Another of the attackers then hit her on the nose, but this spurred her on even more and she elbowed the robber behind her in the face.
This sent him crashing to the floor and he fell heavily against a coffee table, injuring his back.
The third thief searched through drawers and the raiders fled with Lisa's purse.
She said: "I suppose in hindsight it was stupid to fight back, but I was just so angry."
Lisa, of Milnsbridge, works as a phone operator at the taxi firm.
The police took her to hospital for treatment.
X-rays showed she had suffered a hairline fracture to the jaw and a torn ligament in her thumb.
She was also bruised.
Pc Dave McSweeney, of Huddersfield police, said: "Lisa was certainly courageous and the robbers were no doubt shocked by the way she fought back against them."
All the raiders are African-Caribbean men aged 19 or 20 and stocky.
The gang leader wore a dark blue hooded top with a white motif on the left hand side at the front. He also wore black combat trousers.
Another wore a white baseball cap with the letters NYC - or something similar - in black on the front.
Anyone with information or knows who they are should contact Pc Peter Wilson at Huddersfield CID on 01484 436582.
