Woman kicked to ground and has two rings stolen from finger

Published

on

Two men forced a woman to the floor and stole two rings from her finger in Salford.

The robbery happened at around 6.20am on Sunday 29 December 2013, as the 34-year-old woman was walking to her car on her driveway on Christie Lane in Kersal.

Two men approached her from a nearby alleyway, one of whom was armed with a metal bar. The other man kicked her, causing her to fall to the ground, and both men then searched her before forcibly removing two rings from her finger.

They also stole her silver Samsung laptop that had a black stripe running across the body and a white Samsung S3 mobile phone, which was in a pink glittery case.

The man with the metal bar threatened to hit the woman, but she screamed, causing them to flee back down the alleyway, heading in the direction of the car park on Christie Lane/Dickins Close.

The first man is described as white, around 5ft 6in tall, in his late 20s to early 30s, medium build and spoke with a local accent. He was wearing a black zip up hooded jacket that had distinctive chequered white and yellow squares all over it. He wore dark blue trainers with white stripes on and had his face covered.

The second man wore dark clothing.

Detective Sergeant Julie Connor from the CID at Pendleton said: “You can only imagine how shaken up and distressed this lady was left, after being attacked in such a way outside her home and having her rings forced from her hand by these two cowardly men.

“Fortunately, she escaped injury despite being kicked to the floor, but she has been robbed of two distinctive gold and diamond interlocking rings that meant a lot to her, along with her phone and laptop.

“If you think you know who the pair are that are responsible for this robbery, or if you are offered any of these items for sale, I would urge you to get in touch with police so we can identify those involved and try to reunite this woman with her possessions.”

Anyone with any information can contact officers at Pendleton CID on 0161 856 5351 or speak to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111, quoting log 652 of 29/12/13.
