A 27 year old man was woken up and assaulted in his home with a golf club.

The incident happened at around 11.15pm on 23rd December.

The group of men demanded money as they hit him with golf clubs

The offenders were all believed to be wearing grey balaclavas and described as white or of Asian appearance.

They left the home empty handed.

The victim was taken to the Luton and Dunstable Hospital for treatment to severe bruising before being released.

DC Colin Knight, investigating, is keen to speak to anyone who may have seen a group of men in the Hitchin Road area that night.

DC Knight said: 

“This was a frightening experience for the victim who shares the house with two friends who were also woken by the disturbance. Hitchin Road is a busy area of the town even at night and members of the public who may have been out that night could have seen a group of men matching the description. These people may hold vital information that could help this investigation and I would urge them to contact the police.”
