THREE robbers forced their way into a Huddersfield house.
They banged on the door at the house on Yew Green Avenue, Lockwood, at 9.10pm on Wednesday.
When the occupier opened the door they pushed past him.
He was hit in the face and bashed around the head with a kettle.
Fortunately he was not badly hurt.
The thieves pinned him to a settee and stole cash from his pockets.
All three robbers had their faces covered and wore gloves.
Anyone with information should ring Huddersfield CID on 01484 436685 or Crimestoppers free and anonymously on 0800 555 111.
