A BATLEY couple were threatened with knives as their four children slept upstairs during a raid at a house at Dark Lane.
Two men armed with knives went into the house at around 8.30pm on Sunday and demanded money and a safe from the 39-year old man inside.
The suspects threatened the man and his 32-year-old wife with the knives.
After a brief struggle, the 39-year-old man was able to escape and raise the alarm with his neighbours. The raiders left, taking a handbag and purse containing cash.
The 39-year old received minor cuts to his fingers. His wife was not harmed.
The suspects are white men. One is around 5ft 6ins and of stocky to fat build. He wore a green camouflage coat with a hood. The second is 5ft 11ins tall, slim and wore a knee-length black woollen coat.
