Detective Constable Sajid Saddique, from Bedfordshire Police’s Crime Investigation Team, said: “This incident took place in the evening, but it still would have been light outside and it is a relatively busy area, so we are appealing for anyone who saw it happen or has any information to come forward.

“Luckily the victim’s injuries aren’t serious, but he was left shaken and we are determined to catch those responsible.

“So far, we have arrested two men in connection with the incident, who have now been bailed, but there are still outstanding suspects who were involved that we are keen to identify.

“If you saw anything or have any information that could help our investigation, please get in touch with us.”

Anyone with information can report it online, via or by calling DC Saddique on 101, quoting reference 40/ 37997/20.
