A MOTHER and son were threatened with a taser and beaten up during an attempted burglary in Dewsbury.

Two men entered the property through an open side door before threatening the victims with a taser and demanding money and gold.

When the male victim tried to fight them off, his mother was punched in the face.

He was then hit with the taser, which split part of his nostril and required hospital treatment.

The suspects also hit the male victim with a glass vase before he managed to chase them out of the house.

Police are searching for two men in connection with the incident, which took place at a house in Batley Carr between 3.30pm and 4pm on Sunday, September 7.

The suspects are described as white, between 30 and 35 years old, and spoke with Irish accents.

One was an average build, clean shaven with a square face.

The other was a slim build, with short light brown hair.

He was also clean shaven and was wearing a beige hooded jacket.

It is believed they were driving a silver Ford Mondeo car with an 06 registration.

Detective Constable Andy Clayton, from Huddersfield CID, said: “We are currently investigating the circumstances leading up to this unusual, and thankfully rare, type of attack.

“We believe it was a targetted attack and do not think there is any danger to the wider community.

“Nothing was stolen from the house, but we are very keen to trace these men because of the level of violence used and the use of a taser.

“I want any witnesses who may have seen these men, or this car, in the vicinity of Conway Crescent in Batley Carr around this time to contact me on 101 or ring Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
