Man Suffers Head Injuries After Attack
Detectives in Bedford are appealing for witnesses to come forward after a 27 year old man was assaulted, robbed and had his car damaged in the early hours of Sunday morning.
It happened at around 2.20am after the victim had parked his car in Battison Street in Bedford. As he walked along an alleyway he was attacked from behind by two unknown offenders who struck him over the head with a weapon – believed to be a hammer – and punched him several times to the face.
The offenders stole cash from the victim and attempted to steal his mobile phone but he managed to break free and run away home. The offenders have then smashed the front and rear windscreens of the victim’s car before fleeing the area.
The victim was taken to Bedford South Wing Hospital for treatment to a broken nose, broken finger and several cuts to his head which required stitching.
Detective Constable James Panter, who is investigating the incident, is keen to hear from anyone who was in Battison Road or Commercial Road at the time of the robbery and may have seen the offenders. He is particularly keen to speak with two men who were seen sitting outside the Maya Cash and Carry shop in Commercial Road a few minutes before the incident took place.
A lorry driver who crashed into a queue of stationary traffic, killing an elderly couple and seriously injuring a further two people, has been jailed.
