Police are appealing for witnesses to a number of incidents which happened on Wednesday evening in Middlesbrough.
The incidents took place near to the footbridge at the end of Crossfell Road, which leads to Belle Vue Grove, between 7pm and 8pm.
A 14-year-old girl was approached by a small group of youths and was threatened with a silver metal baseball bat before having her phone stolen.
The same group then went on to threaten three males and demanded property from them before going on to assault another two males by hitting them with the bat.
A 26-year-old man suffered injuries which required hospital treatment. He was later released from hospital.
Four youths aged 13, 14, 15 and 16 have been arrested in connection with the offences and all remain in police custody at this time.
Any witnesses or with anyone with information is asked to contact Acting Detective Sergeant Steve Thacker on the non-emergency number 101.
Saltburn has been named one of the best up and coming places to live in the UK.
The seaside town has made it into the top 10 of The London Economic’s list - taking fourth place.
The list was put together to highlight places that have “slipped under the radar, but provide good value for money”, and is based on comparative prices, local investment, and recent trends.
Among the things picked out as highlights in Saltburn were the Seaview Restaurant, and the “elegant” pier, transport links and schools.
They also praised the beach, the “lovely people”, the amount of stuff “for kids to do” and the town’s food festival.
Members of the public are being invited to meet their local police community support officer in Loftus today.
A Cleveland Connected session is taking place this lunchtime in Loftus Library.
Local residents are invited to go along and meet PCSO Lauren Evans who will be there to answer questions and give information on how to become part of Cleveland Connected.
The session is taking place in the library from 11am until midday.
