Man Stabbed In The Back

Bedfordshire Police are appealing for witnesses after a man was stabbed in the back and waist during an assault in Luton on Christmas Eve.

The incident happened between 11pm and 11.30pm as the 20 year old victim was walking between Waldeck Road and Highbury Road.  He was approached from behind by a group of four or five Asian males and stabbed twice by one offender. The victim then ran away while the offenders fled in a different direction.

The victim was left with two wounds, each measuring around two inches, and was taken to the Luton & Dunstable Hospital for treatment.

PC Nicole McCaffrey, who is investigating the attack, is keen to speak with anyone who was in Highbury Road or Waldeck Road at the time of the incident and may have seen the offenders in the area.

The offenders are all described as Asian males, between five feet six inches and seven inches tall, slim to medium build and with their faces covered.
