A YOUNG man was mugged in Lindley by two thugs on a motorbike.
The 18-year-old victim was attacked by the men in a ginnel linking Plover Road and Brian Street.
He was walking down the passageway when the men on a motorcycle rode towards him.
The suspects stopped in front of the victim and threatened him, demanding his mobile phone.
The man refused and was then assaulted by both men and was punched and kicked to the floor in the attack last Wednesday teatime.
The suspects searched the victim’s pockets, taking his mobile phone and £80 cash before riding off on the motorcycle.
The victim was not seriously hurt and returned home before contacting the police.
The suspects are two white men in their early 20s. One is around 5ft 7ins tall, fat and with short facial hair, a short moustache and deep-set eyes. He wore a black hooded coat with the hood up and dark coloured bottoms.
The second suspect also wore a dark hooded top with the hood up, a burgundy scarf and grey jogging bottoms. He is around 6ft tall and slim.
The bike both suspects were riding was described as being dark blue and black.
Police are now appealing for any witnesses to the robbery to contact them.
They are particularly keen to hear from people who may have seen the suspects on the bike in the Lindley area before and after the robbery took place.
Anyone with information should contact Det Con Mick Cummings at Huddersfield CID on 01484 436665, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
