Forensics teams have been searching a sports ground after the death of a 17 year old boy, found with stab wounds over the weekend.

He was discovered hurt in the Kingsway Recreation Ground in Luton at around 3.10pm Saturday afternoon.

The victim, who has not been named, died at the Luton and Dunstable Hospital.

Detectives are keen to trace anyone who can help identify a man seen in the area, described as white with a dark complexion, between 5ft 8in and 5ft 9in tall, with distinctive black sideburns.

He was said to be wearing a green or grey hooded top, green or grey trousers, possibly combats, and a hat.

Detective Chief Inspector Mark Ross is the senior investigating officer. He told Heart:

“The recreation ground was very busy at the time of this incident and we believe the man we are looking for left the scene on foot towards Beverley Road.

“I would urge anyone who recognises the man from the description given or anyone who has information about this crime, no matter how insignificant it may seem, to come forward and speak to officers.”
