A disabled man has been verbally abused and assaulted by teenagers, as he walked home in Luton.

It happened on Sunday 19 January between 3.55pm and 4.10pm , when three teenagers came up to the 29-year-old, as he walked along Tenth Avenue and into Third Avenue.

They threw his shopping around the street, pushed and verbally abused him.

The first offender is described as a mixed race boy with short dark hair and a skinny build, wearing tracksuit bottoms and a hooded top. The second is a white boy with short hair and light coloured eyes, wearing a grey jumper or hooded top. The third offender is described as a white girl with brown shoulder length hair and blue eyes, wearing a shirt.

The officer in charge of this investigation, PC Jag Dhillon, is keen to trace anyone who can help identify those responsible.

PC Dhillon said: “The victim in this case is vulnerable and has experienced this type of abuse before by the same group of people. We need to stop this behaviour now and I would urge anyone who witnessed the incident in Sunday or anyone who can help identify those responsible to contact the police.”
