Man attacked with metal pole


A man is being treated for serious chest injuries after being assaulted with a metal pole in a warehouse in Church Street.

The victim, 40, had been out drinking in Luton with friends on February 20 when they decided to buy more alcohol.

They then made their way to a warehouse in Church Street where they continued to drink.

At approximately 2am a man approached the victim and his friends armed with a metal pole.

The man hit the victim several times before leaving the scene.

The victim managed to leave the scene shortly after but felt unwell so made his way to the hospital where he remains receiving treatment to a serious chest injury.

Det Con Jhabbar Khan said: “The offender is described as a white man with slim build who was possibly Irish

or Romanian. It is important that anyone who saw the assault or heard the disturbance that night contacts the police. Even if they think the information they have is insignificant it may be vital to the investigation and could help identify the offender responsible for this assault.”
