Detectives investigating a robbery in Hemel Hempstead where a woman had her engagement ring stolen have released a photo of the jewellery as part of their investigation.
The incident happened in the park off Longlands in Adeyfield, Hemel Hempstead, at 9.20pm on Saturday, September 14.
The victim, a woman in her 20s, was walking across the park when she was approached by three men who were all wearing bandanas covering their faces.

They were all wearing dark-coloured clothing and spoke with local accents.

“Thankfully she was not injured however I would like to reassure her that we are making extensive enquiries and doing all we can to trace those who are responsible.
“We are now sharing a photograph of her ring in case anyone has been offered it for sale, or they have any information which could lead us to the offenders.”
