Helen's Family: "Despite this victory for justice there can be no celebration"
Woman Punched Off Her mobility Scooter
A 55 year old woman has been left extremely shaken after she was punched in the head and knocked off her mobility scooter.
It happened on the High Street near the allotments between 7 and 8pm on Sunday (3rd November).
She was approached from behind by the offender who grabbed her shoulder before punching her several times in the head.
She tried to defend herself but was struck across the hand with a weapon.
She fell from the scooter and became trapped underneath- the offender then ran away.
The victim didn't suffer any serious injury but is very upset and is now afraid to leave her home.
PC Gareth Underwood, who is investigating the assault says:
"This was nothing more than a cowardly attack on a vulnerable adult who has now been left terrified to venture out of her home. I would urge anyone with information to contact Bedfordshire Police so that we can find this offender and stop him from causing any more misery.
"There was a fireworks display taking place in Henlow at the time of the attack and a lot of people were in attendance. Hopefully someone will have seen something or have information about this assault and come forward to help us with our inquiries."
The man who carried out the attack has been described as around 5 foot 7 inches tall, wearing a t-shirt and smelling of alcohol and body odour.
