We are appealing for information after a man was assaulted by a moped rider, and sustained serious injuries in Avon Drive, Bedford, on 17 April. 

At approximately 2pm, the victim was driving a car along Avon Drive when it was overtaken by a moped on a roundabout. This resulted in the rider and the driver exchanging words and stopping by in a nearby car park, close to the local care home.

The offender is described as a black man in his 20s. At the time of the offence he was wearing all black clothing. The moped is described as black and had a black delivery box on the back.
