Main article content
Officers are appealing for information after people sitting in a car were threatened at gun point in Luton on Friday (4 March).
At around 10.40pm, the victims were sat in a vehicle in Thrales Close when they were approached by two people who had been on a black moped.
One of the moped riders, a man, then pulled out a long-barrelled gun and threatened the two occupants to get out of the car.
They were instead able to drive off and called emergency services a short time later.
PC Stuart King, investigating, said: “This is an incredibly concerning incident, and we are seeking the public’s help in identifying those involved as we have quite limited information at the moment.
“Gun crime is something that absolutely won’t be tolerated in Bedfordshire and our enquiries are ongoing. I would urge anyone with information to contact us immediately as it could be vital to our investigation.”
Anyone with information can contact Bedfordshire Police by calling 101 or reporting online and quoting 40/12437/22.
