Man treated at hospital after assault
The 50-year-old victim needed hospital treatment after suffering injuries to his buttock, leg and under his arm.
He had gone to pick up his son at the junction of Wordsworth Road and Dunstable Road on Monday at around 7.30pm.
But as the victim waited in his car, he saw his 27-year-old son being spoken to aggressively by two unknown men.
He got out of the vehicle to go and help his son but was then attacked.
The resulting injuries saw him taken to Luton and Dunstable hospital where he was treated for three cuts and bruising, before being released.
Bedfordshire Police are appealing for witnesses. They have described the first offender as being a black man, 5’11” tall, approximately 25 years old, with a slim building and wearing a black jacket with lots of pockets, black jeans and dark coloured training shoes.
The second offender is described as black with a light complexion or possibly an Asian man, 5’8” tall, approximately 25 years old. He was well built and wearing a light coloured jacket or jumper with a zip up the front and light grey jogging bottoms.
DC Stephen Francis, the officer in charge of this investigation, said: “Luckily the victim did not receive any life threatening injuries and has now returned home to recover. I would urge anyone who saw this incident or anyone who can help identify the two men responsible from the descriptions given to contact the police.
“I would reassure them that they can do this completely anonymously, and any information given will be used in confidence.”
