Woman injured after dumped in wheelie bin
Thugs dumped a woman in a wheelie bin and pushed it down the road after she refused to give them cigarettes, police said today (Tuesday February 15th).
It is believed the incident happened on February 5 as the 26 year old victim was walking along Beechwood Road in Luton at approximately 8pm.
She was approached by five white men, all wearing dark clothing, hooded tops and scarves over their faces who asked the woman for cigarettes. When the victim refused the men lifted her in to a wheelie bin and pushed the bin down the road until it toppled over and the victim was injured.
The victim attended the Luton and Dunstable hospital where it was confirmed that she had suffered a broken arm.
The officer in charge of this investigation, DC Colin Knight, is keen to trace anyone who may have seen or heard the woman shouting.
He said: "This incident happened at 8pm when lots of people would have either been at home or using this road. I would appeal to anyone who saw or heard something suspicious that night to come forward and help with this investigation."
Anyone with information can contact DC Knight at Luton Police Station, in confidence, on 01582 394333, or text information to 07786 200011, or contact Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
