Police are appealing for information after a 19 year old man was robbed at knife point in Dunstable.

It happened on 17th December as the victim was walking in an alleyway that runs between Furness Avenue and Langdale shops at 6.15pm on his way home from work.

Four men approached the victim and threatened him with a knife before forcing the victim to walk to the cashpoint at the Tesco Express and withdraw cash.

The offenders then took the cash and ran from the scene after punching the victim in the face.

The officer in charge of this investigation, PC Tim Worden, is keen to speak to anyone who can help identify the offenders.

PC Worden said: "This incident happened early in the evening and lots of people would have been out and about. It is possible that the four offenders followed the victim when he got off a bus in the town centre in to the alleyway and I would urge anyone who saw the incident or anyone who can help identify the four men involved to contact the police, in confidence."
