Mobile Phone Stolen During Street Robbery

March 8, 2013, 4:01 pm

Detectives in Luton are appealing for witnesses to come forward after a 46 year old man was assaulted and had his mobile phone stolen on Tuesday February 19.

The incident happened sometime between 8.30pm and 9.30pm as the victim walked along New Bedford Road. As he entered the subway he was approached by two men who asked for the time. The victim said that his mobile phone battery had run out and walked off. A short time later, the victim was at Barclays Bank in Bury Park Road when the same two men approached him again. One of the offenders punched the victim to the floor before both men kicked him to the head and body. One of the offenders then took his mobile phone and they both ran off towards the town centre.

The first offender was a white male, in his mid-teens, around five feet nine inches tall and wearing a hooded top and jeans. The second offender was a black male, of similar age and height, of stocky build and wearing a dark hooded top and jeans.

Detective Constable Jabbar Khan, who is investigating the robbery, is keen to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the attack or seen the offenders in the area.
