Bedfordshire Police is appealing for witnesses to come forward after a 23 year old man was injured during an aggravated burglary last night, December 3rd.

The incident was reported at 8.30pm after a group of three to four men had knocked on the door of the house and forced their way in to the property in Florence Avenue in Luton.

The victim struggled with one of the offenders as they searched the property and sustained a stab wound to his abdomen. He was taken to the Luton and Dunstable Hospital where he remains in a stable condition.

The armed offender is described as a man with a large build, 6’ tall with brown eyes. He wore a blue balaclava, a blue hooded top, blue woollen gloves, a nylon jacket with a zip up the front which also had a logo on the right side that looked like a white circle with two black lines and blue jogging bottoms.

There are no further descriptions of the other offenders available at this time.  

The offenders fled the scene empty handed and Investigating Officer, Jim Fowler, is keen to trace anyone who saw the group of men either arriving or leaving the property.

IO Fowler said: “We believe a silver Honda car was seen in the area at the time of this incident but it is not clear if this vehicle was connected to the offenders. I would urge the driver of this car or anyone with information about the men involved to come forward and speak to the police.”

Anyone with information relating to this incident can contact IO Fowler, in confidence, at Luton Police Station, on 01582 394088, or Bedfordshire Police on 101, or text information to 07786 200011.
