Police ask for witnesses


Police appeal for witnesses after two robberies in the town. Two men stole money from a 32-year-old man, who was withdrawing cash from a cash point, on Dunstable road, Bury Park, on Wednesday, May 7, at 3.30pm. In a separate incident, a 36-year-old man was threatened with a knife in an alleyway near Wenlock street and High Town road, at 1.15am, on Friday May 9.

Detective constable Rachel Chandler said: “I am sure that there are several witnesses to the robbery in Bury Park as the area was extremely busy at the time of the offence.

“A member of the public called the police and the victim remembers seeing other people leaving the shops close by due to the commotion caused by the robbery. I would urge these people to contact the police and help trace those responsible for this crime.

“Clearly the second robbery happened during the early hours of the morning but there may be people who can help identify the offenders involved using the descriptions given and I would also urge these people to contact the police.”
