Masked gang in ‘targeted’ car park attack

A GANG of masked men tried to attack three people in a car park in Batley.

Police are appealing for information after the group of six men approached the victims in the car park off Healey Lane some time between 6.30pm and 7pm on Tuesday, July 11.

The suspects attempted to attack the men, but they fled into a nearby convenience store on Healey Road and managed to block the door. The masked men tried to get in, causing damage to the door before leaving the scene. Nobody was injured.

DC Nicole Rubio-Senior, said: “We would like to speak to anyone who saw this group of masked men attack three males in the car park, or who saw them causing damage to the shop. 

“It is believed the attack was targeted and such behaviour will absolutely not be tolerated in our communities.”

Anyone with information can contact Kirklees CID on 101, referencing crime number 13170315482, or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
