Woman,70, attacked in her home by night intruders

A PENSIONER was assaulted when she discovered three robbers in her Batley home last Friday.

The woman, aged 70, woke due to noise downstairs at around 1am and went to investigate with her daughter.

She saw from the landing of her home on Bunkers Hill three men who had broken in.

Two of them ran upstairs, grabbed the victim, assaulted her and then demanded property.

They fled towards Abbey Road when a male occupant appeared.

The woman was not badly hurt but was left shocked and upset.

The three suspects were white and wore dark clothing. Police are asking witnesses to come forward.

Det Con Richard Brooke, of Kirklees CID, said: “Fortunately, incidents such as this are rare.

“I would ask anyone who saw three men behaving suspiciously outside the address shortly before the incident, or fleeing in the direction of Abbey Road, to contact us.”

Anyone with information can call Kirklees CID on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
