Police investigating an attempt robbery in Keighley are appealing for information when two males approached a woman in her forties and demanded she handed over the gold bangles she was wearing.

The incident is said to have occurred in Bar House Lane at about 4pm on Tuesday, 1 May, 

When the victim refused hand over her gold, one of the males is said to have used a knife to try and remove one of the bangles.

The suspects were disturbed by a passing vehicle and made off in another vehicle, which was said to be blue and is believed to have driven off towards Steeton.

The victim suffered minor injuries and was taken to hospital for treatment.

Detective Constable Hannah Mansell, who is investigating this incident, said: “We believe the suspects may have followed their victim as she was walking towards the junction with Ferncliffe Drive and would be keen to speak to anyone who saw a blue saloon-type car in the area around this time.”
