POLICE have been given new leads in their hunt for an armed gang who struck in the Colne Valley.
The thugs burst into two homes on Manchester Road at Linthwaite in the space of a few minutes early on Monday morning.
They left a woman in one of the houses terrified after threatening her with a sawn-off shotgun and assaulted a man in the second house.
Police believe the attacks were targeted and not random raids.
Det Insp Richard Holmes, of Kirklees CID, said information had come in about the raids over the past 48 hours and new leads were being followed.
Anyone with information about the gang of six men is urged to phone Det Con Jason Thorpe on 01484 436685 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
