Footage released of violent robbery

West Yorkshire police have released cctv footage of the moment a gang of violent masked men carried out a terrifying robbery at a couple’s home in Leeds.

It shows the armed trio battering down the door of the property in Pudsey on December 16th last year. The couple were at their home off Tyersal Road when the robbers launched their attack at about 10pm. The video footage shows three men in balaclavas and armed with iron bars first kicking the door and then hammering at it with their weapons in a sustained bid to break in.

Once inside they attacked a 48-year-old man and threatened his wife. She managed to escape and call the police and the gang fled empty-handed.

Police today called on the public to help identify the robbers.

“This was a terrifying experience for this couple to be confronted by these masked armed men and threatened and attacked in their own home. We are continuing to conduct enquiries into this offence and would like to hear from anyone who has any information that could assist the investigation. While the men had their faces covered, one suspect’s balaclava does not cover the upper part of his face and together with his build and clothing we are hoping someone may recognise him

– Detective Constable Lisa Watts, Leeds CID
