A man's needed 11 stitches on his face, after being attacked by two men in Luton.

The 33-year-old was walking along Luton Street on the evening of Friday 20th June when he got into an argument with two men.

He was hit in the face with an 'unknown implement' and later needed 11 stitches in hospital.

Both offenders are described as white, Eastern European – possibly Polish – men who were in their 40s. The first offender was around 5ft 9ins tall, slim build with grey hair and a large moustache. The second offender was around 5ft 8ins tall, of stocky build and with black shaven hair.

Detective Constable Colin Knight, who is investigating the incident, is keen to speak with anyone who was in the area at the time of the assault and may have seen the offenders or the incident taking place. He said:

“This was a vicious and seemingly unprovoked attack which has left the victim with a very nasty injury to his face and it is imperative that we find the people responsible so that they can cause no further harm.

"I hope that anyone who saw the incident taking place will come forward and help us with our enquiries.”
