CCTV images released as police search for Bedford robbers


Detectives searching for two men they want to speak to in connection with a robbery and serious assault in Bedford last month, have released CCTV images.

So far, nine people have been arrested in connection with two robberies and a serious assault in Bedford town centre at around 12.30 am on Sunday, 21 November.

“We believe the people in these images have vital information that can help our investigation,” said Detective Sergeant Karl Heywood from Bedfordshire Police.

“I am sure someone out there will recognise these people.

“If you think you know them, saw them in Bedford town centre that night, or even if this is you and you want to come forward and help our investigation, please get in touch.”

Anyone with any information is asked to contact police via and quote reference 37 of 21 November.
