Bedfordshire Police is appealing for information after a man was hospitalised following an assault in Bedford town centre.

The incident occurred on Sunday (22 May) at approximately 6pm at the bus station.

The three suspects are described as two white men; one with curly hair and the other bald, and a white woman.

Emergency services attended and the victim – a man in his 50s – was taken to hospital.

PC Steven Kenington, investigating officer said: “This was a horrible act of violence which we do not tolerate in our community. This was an isolated incident in a public space where there would have been onlookers and passers-by who would have seen what happened.

“I would like to speak to anyone who was present at the bus station who can help us understand the situation better and identify the suspects involved.”
