Attack Scene: The alleyway between Eddiwick Avenue and Hillborough Crescent
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.

Detective Constable Matt Shepherd, who is investigating the incident, is keen to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the attack or seen the offenders in the area either before or after the robbery, about 3.30pm.

DC Shepherd said: “This was a very distressing attack on the victim who was extremely afraid of what the offenders may have done. I’d urge anyone who may have seen the offenders to get in contact with us as quickly as possible so we can stop them causing any more harm to residents in the town.”
