Three robbers forced their way into a home and snatched belongings.

Police are appealing for information and have released pictures of the suspects.

The men broke into the house in Howley Walk, Batley, at 11.30pm on Tuesday January 6.

They searched various rooms before taking items including a mobile phone, cosmetic boxes and a bag – which was found in Cardinal Square, Leeds, within an hour of the robbery.

It is thought the culprits may be from the Leeds area.

The Batley and Birstall News has previously featured the victim’s account of this robbery.

The men had confronted mum Anisa Lorgat in her own bedroom while her 11-year-old son slept in a nearby room. They made demands for gold before taking other belongings.

The mother and son have since moved away from the street.

PC Nicole Senior of the Huddersfield Robbery Team said: “I would appeal to anyone who witnessed this incident or who recognises anyone on the pictures to get in contact on 101.

“It is thought that the suspects may have been in the area an hour before the incident happened.”
