A man was stabbed by a dog walker in a field in Woodside this morning.

The landowner, 39, confronted a dog walker who was on his land just off Manor Road at about 7.10am.

The offender, described as a white man in his 40s wearing a grey flat cap and waterproof trousers and jacket, left the scene.

The landowner managed to drive to a friend’s house and call the emergency serives and he was taken to the Luton & Dunstable Hospital.

His injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.

Det Insp Iain Morgan said: “Officers are at the scene undertaking a search of the area. I would urge anyone who saw or heard the incident to contact officers as soon as possible and help piece together what happened this morning. I would also urge anyone who recognises the man responsible for this violent assault from the description given to also contact the police.”

The dog walker had a beard and was about 6ft 1 tall and was walking a small brown mongrel dog.
