A YOUNG man suffered a harrowing 40-minute ordeal after intruders burst into his home wielding a Samurai sword.
They knocked on his door on School Street, Moldgreen, at 8.40 last night and forced their way in.
The three masked robbers threaten to chop-up the 23-year-old victim and searched his terraced house.
They stole two Playstations consoles, a Dell laptop computer and a gold chain.
Det Con Russ Conlon, of Kirklees Police intelligence unit, said: "The men had a Samurai sword and threatened the victim, at one point saying they would chop him up.
"This was a very frightening ordeal for him and we would urge anyone who may have seen these three robbers hanging around the area before the raid or fleeing afterwards to contact us."
