Police are trying to identify two teenagers who threw a brick at a taxi driver in Bedfordshire.

The victim had been driving with his window down near Park Avenue and The Green in Houghton Regis at 6.15pm on Sunday 4 August 2013.

He was hit in the face by what he thought was a stone. He was then approached by two teenagers, and when he challenged them, they threw a brick at him, causing grazing to his arm.

The first teenager is described as a white boy, between 13 – 15 years old, 5ft 1in tall with a chubby build and wearing an orange T-shirt.

The second teenager is described as a white boy, between 13 – 15 years old, 4ft 6in tall with a skinny build and wearing glasses and a white T-shirt.

The officer in charge of this investigation, PC Lee-Anne Pogson, is keen to trace anyone who saw what happened.

PC Pogson said: “Luckily the taxi driver has only suffered a slight injury. However, if missiles such as stones and bricks are thrown at moving vehicles this could cause a serious collision.

"I would urge anyone who can help identify those responsible for this incident to speak to the police so we can nip this behaviour in the bud before others are seriously hurt.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact PC Pogson at Bedfordshire Police on 101, or text information to 07786 200011.

Alternatively, you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
