Morecambe police are appealing for information after a woman had her necklace snatched from her as she was walking home.
The incident happened at around 3:00am on Monday 16th July on Billy Hill when the victim, a 22 year old local woman, was walking home from a night out.
As she reached the top of the hill she has seen two men on the other side of the road and asked them if they had a light for her cigarette.
One of the men has given her a lighter before snatching her necklace from her neck and running off with it.
The necklace is described as a thin gold chain with a teddy bear pendant on. The arms and legs of the pendant move. A gold ring with a black stone in the centre of two clear stones was also stolen as it was also on the necklace.
Detective Constable Ian Wright from Lancaster CID said, “I would appeal to anyone who has information about this offence to come forward and contact the police.
“Understandably the victim has been left shaken following her ordeal and she is obviously keen to be reunited with her stolen jewellery. Anyone with information should get in touch.”
Witnesses are asked to call Lancaster CID on 101.
People with information can also contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or on-line at Crimestoppers-uk.org. No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court.
