Police are investigating an attack on a woman in Houghton Regis that took place on Sunday April 21st in Tithe Farm. Three white males, aged about 17 or 18, one on a bike and with a scar on his face and having an Irish accent, stopped the woman in an alleyway near Eddiwick Avenue. The 43 year old was threatened with a knife and forced to hand over her money.
