Appeal over iPhone robbery

Detectives in Luton are seeking witnesses to a late night robbery that happened on Tuesday (Feb 18).

The 25 year old victim was walking along Park Street at 11.30pm and when he reached the junction of Strathmore Avenue he was approached by three men.

The men punched the victim to the ground and took several items from his pockets including an Apple iPhone, cash, a silver bracelet and rings.

The offenders are all described as black and fled the scene running towards Kingsland Court.

The officer in charge of this investigation, PC Ben Stone, is keen to speak with anyone who saw the robbery.

PC Stone said: “Although this offence happened late at night we know there were a lot of pedestrians out and about at the time. I would appeal to these people to speak with officers and tell them if they saw or heard anything suspicious in the area or saw three men running towards Kingsland Court.”

Anyone with information relating to this crime can contact PC Stone at Luton Police Station, inconfidence, on 01582 394471, or Bedfordshire Police on 101, or text information to 07786 200011.
