Arrests After Luton Stabbing

A man has been stabbed in Luton after a fight involving two groups that led to a car crash.

A man in his early 20s was stabbed in the back following an altercation between two groups of young Asian men that led to a collision between two vehicles - a silver S Class Mercedes and a small dark car.

The groups then ran off in different directions, some down Wilsden Avenue where the man was stabbed. He was taken to hospital but discharged the following day. 

Two men aged 22 and 25 were arrested on Monday (16 February) and bailed until 01 April 2015.

Two men aged 24 and 34 were arrested today (20 February) and are currently in custody.

Detective Constable Colin Knight said: "Four people have been arrested in connection with this serious assault but our investigation is in the early stages and we believe a number of people may have been involved.

"Knife crime is down nine per cent in the area, however we would urge witnesses to come forward in confidence to assist us continue to protect the community."

Anyone with information should contact PC Knight on 101, text information to 07786 200011 or call Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
