Police are looking for these men after an estate agency worker was attacked by armed robbers.

Three men wearing balaclavas and high-visibility jackets and armed with a hammer, a baton and a metal bar raided Catlows on Dewsbury Road, Beeston, on Wednesday afternoon.

They attacked a male staff member and demanded he open the safe.

West Yorkshire Police said the victim fought back and the men fled empty-handed at about 4.40pm. He was treated in hospital for cuts and bruises.

Detective Constable Tony Thompson, of Leeds CID, said: “We are keen to speak to anyone who was in the vicinity of this attempted robbery who can provide information about these men’s movements prior to and after this offence.

“We are particularly keen to hear from any witnesses who have seen the suspects get out of or in to a vehicle around this time.”

Anyone with information is asked to call Leeds District CID via 101.
