Bedford: Teenager knocked unconscious following brutal baseball bat attack

A 19-year-old man's been attacked in Bedford by a group of men carrying iron bars and baseball bats.

The incident happened between 11pm and 11.30pm on Tuesday August 5 as the victim was making his way home along Brecon Way.

The teenager was knocked unconscious.

"The level of violence was extremely high. He was left with nasty injuries, as I said he's suffered cuts and bruising to his head and face and was knocked unconscious.

He was taken to hospital, kept in overnight, X-rayed, and thankfully there were no serious injuries which is very surprising given the level of violence that was actually used during the assault".
