Bradford Telegraph and Argus: An e-fit of one of the suspects An e-fit of one of the suspects

Two teenaged girls were robbed as they walked through a graveyard in Bradford.

The pair, aged 16 and 15, were walking through Undercliffe Cemetery when they became aware of two men following them.

The girls ran off in an attempt to get away.

But they were chased by the men, who then blocked their path.

At that point, one of the men demanded a mobile phone and struggled with the older girl.

He eventually grabbed her phone before running off with the other man.

They made off in the direction of Undercliffe Lane.

Detectives hunting the men have released e-fit images of a pair they want to speak to. The robbery happened at about 3.15pm on Wednesday, December 4.

The first suspect is described as 20 or 21-years- old. He was tanned, eastern European, with short dark hair in a bowl cut.

He was skinny, 5ft 6in tall and had brown eyes. He was wearing a black hooded top with the hood up, light-blue jeans and white trainers.

The second suspect was about 19, 5ft 6in, skinny, tanned, and eastern European in appearance.

He also had short dark hair in a bowl cut and was wearing a grey hooded top with the hood up, and white trainers. Detective Constable Adrian Lilley, of Bradford District CID, said: “We are appealing for information regarding these offences and I would ask anyone who recognises the men pictured in these e-fits, or who has information, to contact myself at Bradford District CID on 101, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.”
