Information sought after violent robbery in Luton leaves three injured

5 Sep 2019

We are seeking information after a man posing as a delivery driver assaulted three people during a robbery at a house on Montrose Avenue, Luton, on Monday (2 September).
At approximately 10.40am, a man called at the property with a parcel and, when the door was opened, launched a violent attack on two women and a teenage girl inside the house, causing some significant injuries.

After the attack, the offender left the house with a satellite TV decoder, a Wii console and another games console, and we would like to trace these items. 
Investigators have identified a man that we would like to speak with, and who is believed to have travelled out of the country.  We are working with several European agencies and police forces to locate him.
Detective Inspector Natalie Fletcher, investigating, said: “The level of violence displayed during this incident was truly shocking, and we continue to pursue a number of lines of enquiry, whilst supporting the victims and their family.
“We’d like to hear from anyone who has been offered these items for sale, or who may have found them discarded, since Monday.
“The offender posed as a courier to gain access to the home, and we were quickly able to establish that this person is not, or has ever been, employed by the company he pretended to be working for. Neither does he have any connection to that business.
“We are aware that footage and photos of this incident are circulating on social media and in the press. If we are to give the best chance of securing justice for these victims, we would ask that people stop circulating the film or the images, and cease speculating on the incident.”

Anyone with information is asked to call DI Fletcher on 101, quoting Op Parish, or visit the force’s online reporting centre.
