Police say six youths have been arrested following a series of street robberies which happened in Leeds.
Ten people, mainly students, were attacked and robbed in the space of half an hour in the Woodhouse area on Wednesday night.
Two of the victims required hospital treatment.
Extra officers from across North West Leeds Division were drafted into the area last night to carry out high-visibility patrols to reassure people in the community and to deter any further offences.
Police say this activity will be continuing over the coming nights and enquiries to trace other suspects are continuing.
Officers are working closely with university security staff.
