A 20-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of three robberies after elderly women had their handbags stolen in the Sutton-in-Ashfield area last week.
The first incident happened in Woods Hill, Sutton-in-Ashfield on 10 October when an 86-year-old woman was robbed in the street.
At around 5.20pm on Saturday 13 October, a 78-year-old woman was robbed in an alleyway between Cowpes Close and Stoneyford Road.
The following day a 68-year-old woman was pulled to the ground after trying to keep hold of her bags during the incident in Main Road, Jacksdale, at around 4pm (Sunday 14 October).
There was a second robbery reported to on Saturday (13 October) in Blackwell Road, an hour before the incident in Stoneyford Road.
