A man needed stitches to his face and staples to his head after an attack in Luton on Sunday (October 21).
The incident happened at around 3am as the victim and a female were walking along Colin Road, Luton, having spent the night celebrating his 30th birthday.
The pair saw two men who were laughing at them and an argument took place, before the male victim was attacked, forced to the ground and beaten by one of the offenders leaving him with a long gash to his forehead and a large wound to the back of the head.
The offenders then fled the area heading towards Ridgeway Road, leaving a glass behind as they did so.
Det Con Gill Cowley said: “This was a very serious assault which has left a young man with some very nasty wounds. It is vital that we find the people responsible and stop them from committing any further offences. Given that the offenders left a glass behind after the assault, there is a strong possibility that they may have attended a party in the area some time before the offence took place so if anyone knows who these men are then I’d urge them to get in contact.
“I’d also like to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time of the assault or anyone else who may have information – however small or insignificant they think it is – that could help us. Don’t dismiss your information as unimportant – even tiny details which don’t seem relevant now might become useful later on in the investigation.”
The two offenders were both white males, in their mid 20s and believed to have been eastern European.
The first offender was around five feet seven inches tall, of stocky build with short blonde hair and wearing a black jacket with a silver zip up the front. The second offender was around six feet tall, of average build with short black spiky hair and also wore a dark jacket.
