Knifepoint ring robbery in Dewsbury park

A WOMAN walking her dog in a Dewsbury park had her engagement ring stolen at knifepoint.

The 23-year-old was near the duck pond in Crow Nest Park at 5.45pm last Friday when a man wearing a balaclava threatened her.

The man took her engagement ring before being scared off by the lights of a silver Vauxhall Corsa pulling in nearby.

The robber, who was thought to be Asian, was 5ft 3in tall with a small build.

Police are appealing for any witnesses who saw a man loitering near the pond.

Officers are also keen to speak to the driver or passengers of the car which pulled into the park during the robbery.

Phone Det Con Mike Parris at Dewsbury CID on 01924 431131 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
