Woman And Child Followed & Grabbed In Luton

Police say a woman and her child have been left scared and shaken, after they were followed by a man in Luton.

She was walking along Dunstable Road with her young child at around 9pm last Sunday (3rd May) when she realised that she was being followed by a man.

The woman then tried to speed up and approached the bridge that goes over Telford Way but the man ran up behind them and grabbed the child's arm.

The woman cried out for help at which point the man ran away in the direction of Luton town centre.

PC Jennifer Peacock said: "This incident has left both the woman and her child understandably shaken and scared.

"The man is described as white, in his twenties, large build, with dark hair. He is described as clean shaven and was wearing a dark grey hooded top with stripes down the arms, blue jeans, and white trainers. He was also carrying a dark coloured rucksack."

Anyone with information is asked to contact PC Peacock on 101, text 07786 200 011, or call Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
