Police appeal: Gang robs Huddersfield shop brandishing weapons


Police are appealing for witnesses after a gang of armed men robbed a Huddersfield convenience store.

At around 10.20pm on Thursday, April, 10, four men entered the One Stop Shop on Fernside Avenue in Almondbury brandishing knives and machetes.

They demanded the tills to be opened and took over £1,000 in cash and a small amount of alcohol before making away towards Aldonley.

DC Richard Brooke of Kirklees CID said: “This was clearly a terrifying ordeal for the two staff members working at the time and I am appealing for any witnesses or anyone with information to come forward.

“Thankfully no-one was injured during the incident, however; there was clearly a genuine level threat of violence.”

One of the suspects was around six ft and of slim build. The other three were smaller and of similar build. Each wore hooded tops and had their faces covered throughout.

Anyone with information should contact Kirklees CID via 101 or Crimestoppers, in confidence, on 0800 555 111.
