Luton father hurt and son critical after stabbing

A man is said to be in a critical condition after he and his father were stabbed at their home in Luton.

The men were with their respective wives and a young child in Dumfries Street on Tuesday when three masked men knocked at the door at 19:50 GMT.

The attackers forced their way in and stabbed the 33 year old many times, and slightly injured his father, aged 60. They left in a white van.

The son had emergency surgery while his father was treated and discharged.

No-one else in the house was injured, police said.

The house is under police guard while forensic work is carried out.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Bedfordshire Police.
