Two men were attacked in Bedford town centre with one being stabbed.

Police are appealing for information from the public after the men were assaulted in the town on Friday, October 3, at about 7.45pm.

The incident happened in a car park in Duckmill Lane when two friends were approached by a man who began to attack them.

The 29 year old victim suffered cuts to his head and a stab wound to his arm; his friend, a 35 year old man, also suffered cuts to his head and scratches to his wrists.

The offender, who is described as a black man, in his late 20s, between 5’10” and 6’ tall, wearing a black hooded top and dark jeans, ran from the scene.

Detective Constable Barry Kerr, investigating, is keen to trace anyone who saw the assault.

DC Kerr said: “This appears to be an unprovoked assault against the two men who were minding their own business. I would appeal to anyone who saw the assault or anyone who

saw a man matching the description given in the area that night to contact the police, in confidence.”
