Plea for attack victim


Two women were assaulted in separate incidents in Luton town centre in the early hours of Sunday.

Now detectives are appealing for the second victim to come forward after arresting a man.

The first incident happened between 3.20am and 3.50am after officers were called to MacDonald’s in George Street where a 19 year old woman had been assaulted and suffered facial bruising.

The offender had left the scene and it is believed assaulted another woman outside the BHS store before being arrested.

DC James Wildman, investigating, is urging the second victim to come forward.

DC Wildman said: “Officers arrested a 20 year old man from Luton in connection with this incident and he has been released on police bail pending further investigation.

“In order to further this investigation we need to trace the second victim or anyone who witnessed this incident and I would urge them to contact officers as soon as possible.”
