A 14-year-old girl was punched and knocked unconcious during an unprovoked gang attack on Crawley Green Road, Luton, last Tuesday (October 7).

The school student victim was assaulted between 7pm and 7.30pm after visiting a friend, as she walked home along Crawley Green Road towards the Vauxhall Way underpass.

As she drew close to the Falconer flats car park she was approached by a group of men.

One grabbed her arm while the others shouted and cheered.

The offenders then tried to grab the victim’s bag and one punched her in the face, knocking her out.

The victim regained consciousness a short time later on a green area, on the opposite side of the road, next to the junction of Hartsfield Road.

The first offender is described as a black man, between 20 to 25 years old. 5’6” to 5’8” tall wearing a black Adidas hooded top, with a white logo on the chest and white stripes down the arms, jeans and training shoes.

Two offenders are described as black men, 20 to 25 years old, 5’6” to 5’8” tall, with muscular builds, wearing hooded tops, jeans and training shoes.

The remaining offenders are both described as black men, with medium builds, wearing hooded tops and training shoes.

The officer in charge of this investigation, PC Hayley Carroll, said; “This was a shocking ordeal for the young victim who had been left unconscious and searched for valuables.

“The offenders appear not to have taken anything and must have carried the victim across the road before leaving her.

“I would urge anyone who saw the incident or saw agroup of people carrying someone in the area that night to come forward and assist this investigation.”
