Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Front Page -

A ROB­BER forced a woman to hand over three rings from her fin­gers as she tried to get into her car.

The 45-year-old Ash­ford woman was ap­proached by a man as she was about to get into her parked car in Drum Lane, Ash­ford, soon af­ter 10.30am on De­cem­ber 8.

He pushed her against the side of the car and de­manded she handed over jew­ellery.

As the woman turned around she was threat­ened and the man forced three rings from her fin­gers, be­fore de­mand­ing money from her.

He then took a quan­tity of cash and ran off to­wards County Square.

The of­fender is de­scribed as white, late 20s to early 30s, with greasy blond or light gin­ger col­lar-length hair and stub­ble. The fin­gers on his right hand were stained dark yel­low and brown with nico­tine.

He was wear­ing a pre­dom­i­nately red wa­ter­proof jacket, with navy blue parts to it, blue jeans and dark footwear.

The stolen rings are de­scribed as a unique Bvl­gari 18ct white gold ring, set with two pave di­a­monds, one blue topaz, a rhodo­lite gar­net and a Palmeira cit­rine worth £1,500; a white Navaho gold wed­ding ring worth £100; and an en­gage­ment ring set with five white stones worth £150.

DC Dar­ren Brough said: “I would like to speak to any­one who has in­for­ma­tion about this rob­bery, or has been of­fered th­ese un­usual rings.”
