Police investigating a robbery in Mirfield have arrested a teenager.

A mother and her son were robbed at gunpoint in Mirfield on Tuesday March 10.

The victims were in Greenside Estate, behind Old Bank Road, when they were approached by two men wearing dark clothes and balaclavas.

They were pushed to the ground when the robbers demanded money, between 5.30am-5.40am.

The robbers made off with a rucksack containing two mobile phones and a small amount of cash, but the mother and son, who were in their 50s and early 20s, were not injured.

After the attack the robbers made off through a ginnel back to Old Bank Road, running past the Thirsty Man pub, towards London Park estate.

An 18-year-old man from Dewsbury was arrested on suspicion of robbery on 12 March and has been released on police bail while enquiries are ongoing.
