A MUSIC teacher was attacked and robbed of his mobile phone after a night out celebrating his 25th birthday.
Adam Winward, of St Matthew’s Drive, Northowram, was yards from his front door when two youths jumped him at 3.30am on Saturday morning.
The 6ft 6in bodybuilder was left with severe bruising and cuts across his face and torso after the assault, which took place in a snicket connecting Bradford Road and St Matthew’s Drive.
His top was ripped off during the five-minute struggle, while one attacker repeatedly warned he had a knife.
His mum, Bridget Winward, said: "He’d been out in Halifax celebrating and this has left him completely shaken.
"You don’t expect to be attacked in Northowram. It is a lovely, quiet little village and the fact that these two yobs seem to have been lying in wait for someone is very scary.
She said the muggers â?? both described as white and thought to be in their teens â?? ran off with the phone but Mr Winward’s wallet was found in trampled bushes the next day.
Police are looking into the incident…
