Alert message sent 07/05/2018 15:01:00

Information sent on behalf of Bedfordshire Police


Detectives have issued a further appeal for information after a man was fatally stabbed in Luton yesterday (Sunday).

Emergency services were called at approximately 4.40pm to Bishopscote Road to reports that a 20-year-old man had suffered serious injuries.

The victim was pronounced dead at the scene, and officers from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit have now launched a murder investigation.

Officers are particularly keen to hear from motorists in the area between 4pm and 6pm who may have captured dash cam footage.

The area remains cordoned off to allow further enquiries to take place.

Detective Chief Inspector Phil Moss, senior investigating officer, said: “This is clearly a shocking incident where a man has been fatally wounded in a public place in broad daylight.

“The community will be understandably concerned and I'd like to reassure people we are taking this matter extremely seriously and have increased patrols in the area.

“The area was fairly busy at the time so I would urge anyone who saw what happened or has any information which could help our investigation to get in touch immediately.”

Anyone with any information about the incident is asked to call police on 101 quoting reference 298 of 6 May.
