We are appealing for information after a man was assaulted by a group of five men who made off with his car. The incident took place on Sunday (20 March) at 8pm outside shops in Hitchin Road, Luton.
The victim was inside his black Volkswagen Golf when another car, also a black Golf, pulled beside him.
Five men got out of the car and began to attack the victim, punching and stabbing him before making off with his car. The victim managed to get away from the scene and was later taken to hospital for treatment to his injuries.
PC Ana Maria, investigating, said: “We are keen to hear from anyone in and around the area, particularly those with any CCTV or dashcam footage, and would encourage anyone who witnessed the incident to contact us right away.
“This was a cowardly attack, and I’d like to reassure the public that we will follow all lines of enquiry to get these offenders off our streets.”
If you have any information to support this investigation, please call 101 or use the force’s online reporting centre and quote reference number 40/15987/22.
