A TAXI driver was robbed by thieves armed with a gun and a knife.
The 34-year-old victim picked three teenagers up at Paddock Head roundabout just before 12.30am today.
They asked to be taken to Trinity Street and the driver set off down Beech Street.
The road has humps and when he slowed down for them, he was grabbed in a headlock from behind by one of the men in the back.
He was then threatened with a knife by the front seat passenger and one of the thieves in the back ordered him to hand over cash or he would be shot.
The victim struggled to break free, reached behind him and felt the barrel of a gun.
He handed some money over and the robbers then went into his pockets and took more.
The victim managed to get out of the car and ran away.
The thieves also got out and fled.
All are Asian and aged 18 to 20.
The knifeman is around 5ft 5ins and slim with very close-cropped hair and sharp facial features. He wore a dark hooded top.
Det Con Steve Shaw, of Huddersfield CID, said: "We would like to speak to anyone who may have seen these three hanging around the Paddock area shortly after midnight or running away after the robbery.
"It could be they got in a car."
