The woman had got into her red VW Golf in Harrogate Road at about 6.50pm on June 16th when four men entered the vehicle, one with a knife, while another opened the driver's door and demanded she handed over her keys.

The woman refused and was punched and kicked by the men who ran off with her handbag.

Although the woman was not seriously hurt, this was an upsetting and traumatic experience for her and it is vital we find these men. This incident happened close to a busy parade of shops in broad daylight and we know there were other people in the area at the time. We would urge them to come forward and tell us what they saw.

One man has been arrested and bailed in connection with the enquiry and anyone who might recognise the men pictured is asked to contact Bradford District CID on 101.
