A man was threatened with a knife in an attempted robbery in Liversedge last night (Thursday).

The victim, a 58-year-old man, was driving along Freakfield Lane at around 8.45pm, when he was blocked in by a grey Peugeot saloon.

Three males, one who was brandishing a knife, jumped from the car and approached the victim’s car and asked him what was in the boot of his car.

The victim then showed them there was nothing in the boot and the suspects, whose faces were covered, made their escape.

Any witnesses or anyone with information is asked to contact Kirklees CID via 101.
