Images of Violent Crossflatts Street Mugging Gang Released
E-fit images of a street mugging gang have been released by police.
The group violently robbed a 22-year-old commuter of her mobile phone as she walked from Crossflatts train station.
The gang struck on 5 February at around 6pm on Keighley Road.
As the victim walked along the road, she noticed four suspects walking towards her.
She walked past the suspects and one of the female suspects grabbed her handbag and tried to pull it off her. She pulled some headphones out of her ears and shouted at the suspects to get off.
The suspects then assault the victim by punching and kicking her and then forcing her up against a wall, causing her to stumble to the floor. The victim’s iPhone dropped from her pocket and an Asian male, who was part of the group picked it up before all four suspects fled the scene towards the direction of Bingley.
