A 20 year old man was assaulted on Monday (Mar 10) in Ravenhill Way, Luton as he and a friend were walking close to the Nisa shop.
A black car with blacked out windows stopped and a number of men got out before chasing the victim and his friend. They caught the victim and assaulted him with a sharp implement causing a puncture wound to his chest.
All the offenders got back into the vehicle and drove off in an unknown direction.
The officer in charge of this investigation, Detective Constable Gareth Suffling, is keen to trace anyone who witnessed the incident and can help identify those involved.
DC Suffling said: “This incident happened in broad daylight and in a very busy part of Lewsey Farm. I am sure there are members of the public who saw the incident and possibly didn’t realise the seriousness of the situation. I would appeal to these people to come forward and help identify those responsible for this assault.”
