A 46 year old man was robbed as he walked along Sundon Park Road on Monday night.
The victim had reached the junction of Toddington Road, close to the MacDonald fast food outlet and the BP garage on Marsh Road at around 11.10pm when he was approached by three men.
Two grabbed his arms while the third pushed an unknown object in to his stomach and demanded the victim’s property.
The victim handed over an Apple iPhone 5s, a Nokia N5 and a small amount of cash before the offenders fled the scene.
All three offenders are described as white men, possible Eastern European, approximately 5’8” tall and wearing dark clothing.
Detective Constable David Elias said: “Although this offence happened late at night this is an extremely busy area with lots of motorists passing by and the fast food outlet being regularly used late at night. I would urge anyone who saw the robbery or anyone who saw three men matching the description to come forward and speak to officers, in confidence.”
