Luton violent robbery appeal

7 Jan 2020

We are appealing for witnesses to a violent robbery on Friday (3 January), in Addington Way, Luton.

The incident took place around 4.50pm, near the gate leading to Challney Park. A teenage boy was assaulted by three males armed with a samurai sword and a baton, before they took his mobile phone, the coat he was wearing, a power bank charger, cash and a leather bag.

One of the offenders was described as Asian, around 5”10’, slim build, wearing a hockey style mask which was black with a red cross across the whole of the mask and a navy blue Nike tracksuit. The jacket had a white Nike logo across the chest, with a dark Nike tick inside of the writing. The tracksuit bottoms have the Nike writing going down the leg. Another offender was also described as Asian, around 5”10’, skinny build, wearing a black hoodie and a black balaclava.

Investigating officer Hardeep Wheeler said: “This was clearly a terrifying incident for the victim involved. We do not tolerate violence of this nature in our county and we are looking for any witnesses to come forward or anyone with any information. It was a busy time in the afternoon and we are hoping there will have been people who may have seen something.”

Anyone with information is asked to please contact 101 or report online at quoting reference 40/543/20. Alternatively you can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
