Teenager's diamond engagement ring stolen during Bournemouth robbery
A teenager had her diamond engagement ring stolen during a robbery in Bournemouth.
Dorset Police are appealing for witnesses after the diamond ring was taken along Bath Road between 3:30am and 4am on Saturday January 26 - near the petrol station.
A 19-year-old woman was pushed against a wall and had her pockets searched by an unknown man.
The offender made off with the woman's engagement ring and some cash which were both in her pockets. The victim was uninjured during the robbery.
Detective Constable James Batty of Bournemouth and Poole CID said: "Understandably, the victim was distressed by the incident and very upset about the loss of the ring - an obviously very special and personally significant possession.
"The ring consists of 18 carat white gold with a larger diamond flanked by three smaller diamonds on either side of it.
"I urge witnesses and anyone who has any information about the robbery to contact police as soon as possible.
"I would also like to hear from anyone who has been offered a ring of this description in unusual circumstances or at an unusually low price."
The robber has been described as between 20 and 30 years old, about five feet six inches tall and of average build with broad shoulders.
He has dark hair and was wearing dark trousers and a dark hooded top.
Witnesses or anyone with information should contact Dorset Police on 101, quoting incident number 26:371.
