A man was attacked with an axe and a screwdriver in broad daylight in Lygetun Drive.
The 39-year-old was walking at about 3pm on January 11 when a silver car pulled up close to him and a man got out and punched him in the face.
Three other men then got out of the vehicle and joined in the assault, hitting the victim in the face with a screwdriver and on the leg with an axe.
Det Con Martin Hart said: “The victim attended hospital for treatment and is now recovering at home.
“I believe there was a lady in Lygetun Drive at the time of the assault and I would appeal to her or anyone else who has information about this assault to contact the police, in confidence.”
All four offenders are described as Asian men, between 25 and 30 years of age and all got out of a silver four-door Honda car, possibly a Civic or Accord.
Call Det Con Hart in confidence on 01582 394068 or Beds Police on 101 with information.
