Teens Jump Woman in Meadowbrook, Take $7 Engagement Ring Bought on eBay

By Tom Fucoloro April 23, 2010

Two teenage girls wearing black hoodies and jeans jumped a woman near Meadowbrook Community Center and stole the engagement ring off her finger.

According to the police report, the victim, her fiancé and their child were going for a walk around 7:30 a.m. April 18 when they realized they had forgotten the diaper bag at home. The woman decided to wait on the trail—which leads from the center to nearby Nathan Hale High School—while her fiancé took their child back to their home to fetch the bag.

While she was waiting, two teenage girls approached her and asked her for a cigarette. Suddenly, they punched her in the face, knocking her to the ground. They took the ring off her finger and fled. Her fiancé and child returned and took her to the hospital. She had swelling and redness around both eyes.

Both suspects were described as white females ages 16-17. One had brown hair in a pony tail. 

You might also recognize them by the disappointment on their faces having realized they just jumped a woman on an early Sunday walk for a silver ring with a cubic zirconia crystal that the couple purchased on eBay for $7. Needless to say, the robbers have a few things to learn about diamond theft.
