Couple threatened with knives during street attack

ROBBERS threatened a couple with knives to steal a £1,000 gold chain.

A 39-year-old man and his girlfriend (29) were approached by three men as they walked home from the Red Bull pub in Masbrough.

There was a scuffle and the alleged offenders made off with the chain, but not a matching bracelet the woman was wearing.

The man received cuts, bruises and swelling to his face in the attack, on Union Street on Monday, May 3 at 11pm.

All three offenders wore dark-coloured sports clothing with hoods up and are said to be of medium build, in their late teens or early 20s, and between 5ft 10ins and and 6ft tall.
