Teenage Victim of Attempted Robbery


Bedfordshire Police are appealing for witnesses following an attempted robbery which took place in Houghton Regis on Sunday October 14.

The incident happened at around 6.30pm as the 16 year old male victim was walking along Richmond Drive towards Trident Drive, close to the small bridge. The victim was approached by a group of seven or eight males with one of them grabbing him by the neck and demands were made for him to hand over money and property. The victim was then searched and when nothing was found, he was punched in the face and the group fled towards Wheatfield Road.

Although there was a group involved, there were two main offenders. The first is described as a white male, 16 to 17 years old, around five feet six inches tall, of stocky build, clean shaven, dark hair, clear complexion and wearing a purple hooded top. The second was also a white male, of similar age, around five feet five inches tall and of skinny build.

Detective Constable Jo Bosson, who is investigating the incident, is keen to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the attack, or may have seen the offenders in the Richmond Drive or Wheatfield Road area.

If you have information relating to this incident, contact DC Bosson, in confidence, on 01582 473152, the non-emergency number 101, or text information to 07786 200011.

Alternatively contact independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111, or online at crimestoppers-uk.org.
