A 16-year-old boy has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after a father was stabbed during a suspected burglary.

Tony Abrahams, 47, suffered serious injuries after he confronted intruders in the early hours of Saturday at his home in Wellfield Avenue, Luton.

A teenager has been arrested in London and taken to Luton for questioning, Bedfordshire Police said.

Three men, described by Bedfordshire Police as black and in their twenties, are believed to have forced their way into the Abrahams' home at about 3am.

Speaking after the incident, Detective Constable Mo Hussain said a man was "attacked and stabbed" by the offenders, who then fled the scene.

He added that the victim's wife and daughter, believed to be Catrina, 52, and Jade, 23, raised the alarm after finding Mr Abrahams injured.
