Bedfordshire Police are appealing for witnesses to an ‘horrific attack’ after a man was stabbed several times in Bedford Park on Saturday (20 June).

The incident took place between the hours of 10pm and 11pm on Saturday, when the victim was sat in Bedford Park.

Two masked men on electric scooters approached him and the offenders then stabbed the man several times before fleeing the scene.

His wounds have been described as serious but not life-threatening.

Detective Constable David Gordon, investigating, said, “This was a horrific attack in what we believe to be an isolated and targeted incident.

“We are appealing to the public for their help in finding these offenders.

“Anyone who may have been in the area at that time or who may have seen two men on electric scooters in Bedford town centre is asked to get in contact with us.

“I’d also like to ask anyone who has dash camera footage or CCTV of these areas to come forward, as the footage could prove valuable to the investigation.

“Knife crime will not be tolerated in the county and we will continue to work hard to protect our communities from it and find those responsible.”
