Houghton Regis teenager left naked after assault

A man walking home after an argument with his former partner was beaten up, stripped naked and left in the street by three men, police say.

The 19-year-old victim needed 20 stitches to his mouth after the attack in Copperfield Close, Houghton Regis.

Police arrested and bailed three men in their 20s in connection with the attack on 17 June. They have appealed for witnesses to come forward.

The teenager also lost a number of teeth during the attack, police said.

A spokesman for Bedfordshire Police said one of the attackers was black, 5ft 8ins tall and of stocky build while the other two were white.
