A pregnant teen was pulled to the ground and kicked in the stomach by four men during a savage attack.

The assault occurred outside the 18-year-old victim’s home in Rudyard Court, Luton, sometime between 2.40pm and 3.10pm on Friday October 31 as the 10 weeks pregnant teen was making her way home.

She saw four men smoking near to her front door but as she walked past, one of the men grabbed her hair and pulled her to the floor.

All four men then started kicking the victim in the stomach and laughing at her.

At this point, a member of the public driving what is thought to have been a silver Ford Fiesta came to the victim’s aid and the offenders fled.

The Good Samaritan then drove the victim to Luton Police Station.

The victim was left with severe pains in her stomach and was taken to Luton and Dunstable Hospital for a check-up where it was confirmed that her baby was safe and well.

PC Paul Harris, who is investigating the incident, is keen to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time of the assault and may have witnessed the attack.

He is also keen to track down the Good Samaritan who may hold valuable information about the attackers who were all Asian men and in their late teens or early 20s.

One of the men was wearing a black top and grey jogging bottoms.

Anyone with information relating to this incident can contact PC Harris at Bedfordshire Police, in confidence, on the non-emergency 101 number, or text information to 07786 200011.
