The victim was left shaken and distressed after being attacked outside her home and her rings forced from her hand
A woman was forced to the floor before having two rings stolen from her hand in a robbery in Salford.
Two men approached the 34-year-old victim from an alleyway as she was walking to her car on her driveway on Christie Lane in Kersal at around 6.20am on Sunday.
One of the men was armed with a metal bar. The other man kicked her, causing her to fall to the ground, before both men searched her.
The pair forcibly removed two rings from her finger before stealing her laptop and phone.
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 was white, around 5ft 6, in his late 20s to early 30s, of medium build and spoke with a local accent.
He was wearing a black zip up hooded jacket that had 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.
The victim’s silver Samsung laptop had a black stripe running across the body. Her mobile phone was a white Samsung S3 and was in a pink glittery case.
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.”
