We are appealing for witnesses after a woman was robbed while walking with her two-year-old son.
The incident happened in a field near a stream in the Catsbrook Road area of Luton at around midday on Wednesday (5 January).
The victim was walking in the field with her young son when someone came from behind her, threatened her with a knife and demanded she handed over her purse.
The victim did not have a purse so the suspect ripped some necklaces she was wearing off of her. He also took her phone out of her pocket but left it at the scene.
The suspect is described as white, in his 20s with a broken blood vessels on his face.
He was wearing a black parka jacket with fur trim around the hood, a disposable face mask and had his hood up.
DC Adam Geary, investigating, said: “The lack of humanity shown by this person, who has threatened a mum with her young child, is absolutely shocking.
“If you recognise the description of this person, were in the area at the time and saw anything, or have CCTV or dashcam footage which could help us, please get in touch.”
Anyone with any information can contact Bedfordshire Police online or by calling 101.
Please quote reference 40/846/22.
Alternatively you can contact Crimestoppers and give information, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
