WEST Yorkshire Police are appealing for witnesses following a theft offence in Halifax.

The incident happened on Saturday, January 2, at 16.30pm on Keighley Road, between the junctions of Grove Avenue and Athol Road.

A car pulled up alongside a 23-year-old female with a pushchair, and three men then got out of the car and demanded her purse.

The 23 year-old victim handed over her purse and the car drove off down Old Lane, Halifax.

The car is described as a small silver 5-door hatchback.

No injuries were sustained, but the victim was understandably shaken by the incident.
