Police are appealing for information after an attempted robbery on Linthorpe Road in Middlesbrough.
It happened last Thursday when a 64-year-old man was approached by two people who tried to steal his watch.
A man and a woman were arrested on suspicion of the robbery but were released pending further enquiries.
It's believed that three men in a dark coloured car stopped to help the victim.
Police would like these men to come forward because they believe they could help them.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Constable Kate Brodie on non-emergency number 101.
Homes in Saltburn that were initially refused planning permission between will soon be available to buy.
Larkfields on Marske Road will have 116 homes available with two to four-bedrooms.
The scheme was refused planning permission in January last year by the Redcar and Cleveland Council due to local opposition.
And at the inquiry residents turn up to object, claiming the development would lead to the loss of countryside.
But an appeal was allowed and outline planning permission granted and now buyers will soon be able to put offers in.
