POLICE are investigating links between three robberies in Lindley.

The Black Horse pub in Occupation Road is the latest business to be targeted by thugs with knives.

On Friday lunchtime a man walked into the pub around 1.15pm and demanded cash.

Following a struggle he made off with the contents leaving the terrified landlady with a cut to her arm.

She was treated at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary.

The incident follows two attacks at Jacksons convenience store on Acre Street during last week. In the latest incident last Thursday knife-wielding robbers escaped with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Just six days earlier, the store was raided in a similar knifepoint incident when the robbers fled with cigarettes and £1,700 in cash.

The robber at the pub incident is described as white, 5ft 9ins tall, average build, in his late teens to early 20s and had dark eyes.

He was wearing dark clothing with his face covered.

Det Con Richard Brooke, of Huddersfield CID, said: “We are aware of a number of similar incidents in the local area and we are investigating any possible links.

“The local Neighbourhood Policing Team are monitoring the area as part of their patrols to offer reassurance.

“I would urge any witnesses or anyone with any information to contact Huddersfield CID via 01484 436548 or Crimestoppers in confidence on 0800 555 111.”
