The victim had their phone taken during the robbery, while they were also left with injuries to their head, arms, and legs.

Following Tuesday’s early-morning arrest, police detained a second suspect hours later who was also wanted in connection with the incident.

A 16-year-old boy was subsequently arrested on suspicion of robbery.

Detective Sergeant Georgina Gallagher, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Robbery is an incredibly serious offence that has absolutely no place in our communities and can impact victims for years afterwards.  

“Bearing this in mind, we’re pleased to have made two arrests in connection with this incident so far but want to stress that our inquiries are still very much ongoing.

“One of these suspects was detained after we were called to a separate incident at a house.

“As I’ve said, we are continuing to investigate the robbery in Brinsley, so would ask anyone who has any information to contact the police straight away.

“Information can be reported either by calling the police on 101, quoting incident 793 of 13 May 2024, or contacting Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
