We're investigating four attempted robberies in Top Valley, Arnold and Sherwood areas of Nottinghamshire.

The first three happened last night (Wednesday 20 December 2017) in Rideway, Top Valley at 9.45pm, then Sherbrook Road, Daybrook at 11.20pm and George Street, Arnold around five minutes later. The fourth incident happened just after 1am this morning in Warrener Grove, Top Valley.

Two to three men were said to have been involved in each incident but nothing was taken. 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."
