Police are looking for witnesses after a 15-year-old was assaulted and robbed by a gang of youths in Luton.

The attack took place in New Bedford Road on Friday November 21 at around 2.50pm. The teenager was walking along the streets, when approached by three Asian youths, all aged about 17.

They grabbed him and stole his Samsung S2 mobile phone and his wallet.

The first offender is described as skinny, wearing a black padded jacket, dark blue Armani jeans and black trainers. The second was chubby, about 5’2, clean-shaven and wearing a grey hooded top and dark blue jeans. The third was chubby, about 5’5, clean-shaven and wearing a black hooded top and black Nike trousers.

The victim suffered bruising in the assault.

PC Ben Stone said: “This was a busy road and there would have been a lot of people around because of pupils leaving the school nearby.

“I would urge anyone who witnessed the incident or has any information, to call police.”

Anyone with information call PC Stone on 101.
