Woman stabbed in attempted robbery in Luton

The hunt is on to catch two violent muggers who stabbed a woman during an attempted robbery in Luton.

The 25-year-old was in an alleyway between Ashburnham Road and Downs Road at about 9.30pm on Monday, May 11, when she was approached by two men.

They pushed her to the ground and demanded she hand over her property. They made off and the woman realised she had been stabbed in the leg.

The offenders are described as black and were wearing dark clothing.

Detective Constable Tracey Litchfield said: “This was a nasty attack and we’re keen to trace those responsible as soon as possible.

“I would urge anyone who knows who is responsible to call police.”

Anyone with any information should call DC Litchfield on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
