Police hunt three after man injured in street robbery

Police are appealing for witnesses to a street robbery in Linslade, Bedfordshire on Thursday 13 September. A 40-year-old man was attacked and robbed of his wallet and mobile phone in Mentmore Road. He was punched and kicked by three men and left unconscious on the street at just after midnight.

The victim was assisted by a member of the public who took him to a nearby petrol station and the emergency services were called. He was then taken to hospital for treatment to cuts and bruising to his face.

"This was a vicious and upsetting experience for the victim and it is vital that we find the people responsible as quickly as possible and stop them from committing any further offences. We are particularly keen to speak with the Good Samaritan who assisted the victim after the attack as this man may hold some valuable information about what happened."

– Detective Constable Joanna Bosson, Bedfordshire Police

The three men are all described as being white, in their mid to late 20s and wearing hooded tops. Police are appealing for information on 101 or via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
