Police are looking for witnesses after three men were attacked in the early hours of Bank Holiday Monday.
The incident happened in Beauvais Square, New Cardington, after the three men - who had been out for the evening in the town centre - were dropped off by a taxi between 12.30am and 12.45am.
They were then set upon by a larger group of men, including two white men and a mixed race man, all in their early 20s, who punched them and hit them with bottles.
An iPhone was stolen from one man and two victims received treatment at hospital for cuts to their heads.
Police were called, and shortly afterwards a man was arrested in Shortstown and a phone was recovered.
This man is currently on police bail, pending further enquiries.
Detective Constable Lynn Adams, of Bedford CID, would like to hear from anyone who saw the incident or has information about it.
She can be contacted directly on 01234 275142, or via the non-emergency 24-hour police number 101, or contact independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
