POLICE are hunting pickpockets who have carried out thefts in Huddersfield, Dewsbury and Batley.
On Saturday a couple from Bradford were queuing to get on a bus in St George's Square when a man pushed through to the driver.
As the man created a disturbance an accomplice whipped the 68-year-old Bradford man's tan wallet from his jacket. The pair made off.
The first suspect is described as being white, around 5ft 5in with thinning brown hair. The second man is of similar appearance.
In Dewsbury on Monday afternoon a 21-year-old woman and friend were walking along Daisy Hill near its junction with Wellington Street when a man approached from behind.
The woman felt a tug at her pocket and when she checked, her purse which contained £70 was missing. The suspect was described as white with slim build and short blond hair.
He is believed to be in his early 20s with small eyes and a pointy nose and was of scruffy appearance. He wore a cream jacket and blue jeans.
Earlier on Monday, between 9am and 9.25am, a mother had taken her little boy to the toilet in the Marketplace in Batley when she noticed two men waiting outside.
She then walked to a sandwich shop and saw the two men near her again.
When she went for her purse to pay it was gone.
The first man is described as being quite tall with a receding hairline and being of a scruffy appearance. The second was of a similar appearance.
