Information sent on behalf of Bedfordshire Police


Bedfordshire Police is appealing for witnesses after a man was robbed as he got out of his car.

The victim was punched and kicked a number of times during the incident in Westbury Gardens, Luton at around 10.40pm on Tuesday (7 July).

Three men attacked the victim and stole his iPhone, car keys and another mobile phone. They also attempted to steal the victim’s watch.

The offenders then ran off, dropping the car keys and iPhone as they fled.

PC Helen Pecorini, investigating, said: “This sort of violence is clearly unacceptable and thankfully the victim only suffered minor injuries.

“We believe there may have been passing cars in the area who saw this incident unfold.
“I would urge them to get in contact with us, or pass on any information they have about the incident anonymously to Crimestoppers.”

Anyone with any information about the attack can report via Bedfordshire.police.uk/report or by calling PC Pecorini on 101. Please quote reference 40/36547/20.

Alternatively, you can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
