Luton police are appealing for a Good Samaritan who alerted emergency services to an incident the weekend before last.
A 28-year-old man was found unconscious in Malvern Road during the early hours of Sunday (August 25).
It is believed he was injured during a robbery that took place between 11pm and midnight on Saturday (August 24) after getting involved in an argument with another man as he was walking from a friend’s house along Newcombe Road.
When he reached Dallow Road he was approached by three unknown men who assaulted him and took his Samsung mobile phone.
The victim returned to his friend’s house to receive treatment to his injuries and then left again between midnight and 1am.
He does not remember what happened to him on this second journey and only regained consciousness in Malvern Road as he was being helped by ambulance staff.
PC Ben Stone, investigating, is keen to trace the Good Samaritan who rang the Ambulance Service to help the victim in Malvern Road and anyone who saw the earlier robbery in Dallow Road.
He said: “We’re still trying to piece together exactly what happened during the second journey night and it’s possible the Good Samaritan who may be able to help”.
Anyone with information regarding this incident is urged to contact PC Stone in confidence on 01582 394471, or Bedfordshire Police on 101 or text information to 07786 200011.
