Police have arrested a second suspect after a man had his wallet, phone and coat stolen during a mugging.

The victim was assaulted by a group of men in Waldeck Road, Sherwood. He suffered head injuries and was taken to hospital for treatment. 

The attack happened at around 4.30pm on Tuesday (23 November 2021).

Following enquiries, police have now arrested two men, both aged 19, on suspicion of robbery as they continue with their investigation. 

One of suspects was also arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply a Class A drug and possession of cannabis.

Detective Sergeant Franco Guddemi, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: "I am pleased we’ve now been able to make a second arrest as we progress with our enquiries into this incident.

“While we have arrested two suspects in connection with this robbery, our investigation is very much continuing and I would ask anyone with information who has not yet come forward to please do so.”

"This includes any drivers who were in the area around this time and who may have recorded dash-cam footage.”

Nottinghamshire Police has two robbery teams whose officers are dedicated specialists in investigating robberies and their ongoing work has contributed to a fall in robbery offences in Nottinghamshire during the last financial year (year to June 2021).

Anyone with any information about the robbery is urged to call Nottinghamshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 490 of 23 November 2021, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
