A 71-year-old man was walking along Lyndhurst Road in Ascot when a man tried to get him to hand over his wallet.

Then in Albert Road, Old Windsor, a 17-year-old girl had her handbag snatched.

A 15-year-old girl had her handbag stolen in Slough Road, Datchet, and a woman had her handbag stolen in Green Lane, Windsor.
