Linslade street robbery
Police are searching for three suspects following the attack of a man in a street robbery in Linslade.
The incident happened in Mentmore Road, just after midnight on Thursday when the 40-year-old male victim was approached by three males who assaulted him by punching him to the floor and then kicking him unconscious.
The victim was on his way to work when offenders stole the victim’s mobile phone and wallet before leaving in an unknown direction.
A member of the public took the victim to a nearby petrol station and called the emergency services before he was taken to hospital for treatment to cuts and bruising to his face.
Detective Constable Rebecca Kitts, who is investigating the robbery, is keen to hear from anyone who was in Mentmore Road on the night of the attack or may have seen the three suspects either before or after the robbery. The three men are all described as being white, in their mid to late 20s and wearing hooded tops.
DC Kitts said: “This was a vicious and upsetting experience for the victim and it is vital that we find the people responsible as quickly as possible and stop them from committing any further offences.
“I would like to hear from anyone who was in the Mentmore Road area at the time of the robbery or anyone else who may have information – however small or insignificant they think it is – that could help us. Don’t dismiss your information as unimportant – even tiny details which don’t seem relevant now might become useful later on in the investigation.”
