Police officers have launched an appeal after three attempted street robberies took place overnight – two of them in Daybrook and Arnold

Officers have said the first three happened overnight on Wednesday(20) in Rideway, Top Valley at 9.45pm, then Sherbrook Road, Daybrook at 11.20pm and George Street, Arnold around five minutes later.

A fourth incident happened just after 1am on Thursday morning in Warrener Grove, Top Valley.

Two to three men were said to have been involved in each incident but nothing was taken. Police have said it’s unknown whether they are linked at this stage.

Detective Johnstone Daniel Johnstone of Nottinghamshire Police said: “We really don’t want people to be too alarmed but just to be aware that we’ve had several of these incidents in the run up to Christmas.

“Please look after yourself if you’re heading out at night. Avoid walking along with ear phones, carry a personal alarm and try to use well-lit areas if you’re on your own.”
