Bedfordshire Police is appealing for information after a man was left with serious injuries after being attacked in Luton yesterday (Monday).
Shortly after 2.30pm, officers were called to the junction of Arundel Road and Dunstable Road following reports of a serious assault using what is believed to be a long pole or baseball bat. Emergency services attended the scene and a man in his 20s was taken to hospital where he remains in a stable condition.
The offenders are described as being two men; one of whom is described as a young man of South Asian heritage with a beard. Both men were seen wearing dark tracksuits and face coverings. After the assault, the men ran towards Dunstable Road where they got into a grey Vauxhall Astra.
Detective Sergeant Flaminia Romita from Bedfordshire Police’s Boson guns and gang unit said: “We do not tolerate violence on our streets, full stop. This was an utterly violent attack using a baseball bat like weapon, and a man is now sadly in hospital with serious injuries.
“His family should not be in this situation, his friends should not be in this situation and our community should not be in this situation. The ripple effects of violence do not just stop at the offender or the victim, there is everlasting damage and unimaginable impact.
“It is vital witnesses come forward so that we can get the information needed to locate the people responsible, and ensure they are brought to justice.”
