Armed Robbery In Huddersfield

Happened at a car dealers in Birkby yesterday evening.

Huddersfield police are appealing for information after an armed robbery at a car dealers.

At about 7pm yesterday (16/12), two men - one armed with a sawn-off shotgun, the other with a crowbar or spanner - entered the showroom of Shak's Specialist Cars, in Birkby Hall Road, Birkby, and demanded cash from the owner and three male members of staff.

When they were told there was no cash on the premises they stole two mobile phones.

The owner then ran from the showroom leaving the robbers locked in. The robbers went to the rear workshop and fired the shotgun once to break the padlock on the door before escaping into the back alley and running off towards Storth Place. No-one was injured in the incident.
