Appeal following violent disorder in Bedford

11 Aug 2021

A violent disorder which took place in Bedford today (Wednesday) has resulted in two arrests, as we continue to appeal for information.

We were called to Wendover Drive at approximately 1.40pm following reports of a group of men fighting, some armed with weapons.

Emergency services attended the scene.

Two men have been arrested on suspicion of violent disorder, however they are currently receiving hospital treatment for their injuries, which are not believed to be serious.

PC Ashleigh Napier said: “This was a scene of appalling violence involving multiple people fighting and causing deliberate harm to others.

“We have arrested two men in connection with the disorder, however we believe there were others involved so we are urging anyone with information to come forward.

“This incident happened in the middle of the day when there would have been many people in the area. If anyone saw or heard anything at all, or has mobile phone or dash cam footage, then we would really like to hear from you."

Anyone with any information can speak with an officer at the scene, or contact us on 101 or online on the Bedfordshire Police website, quoting CAD 329 of 11 August.

You can also report anonymously via independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
