Police are searching for thieves who stole a pensioner’s wedding and engagement rings from her fingers while they distracted her in the street.
The 88-year-old victim was walking along back Back Sitwell Street when two women approached her sometime between 2.30pm and 3.30pm on Saturday.
They handed her two necklaces and asked her for money. When she refused, they took the rings from her fingers and left.
One ring is a plain gold wedding band while one is a gold band with a ruby. The third ring is gold, wishbone shaped and features a sapphire.
The victim did not get a good look at the women and could only recall that one of them was wearing a hat.
Anyone with information should call DC Paul Adkin on 101, quoting crime reference number 5640/16, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
