A ‘despicable’ thief snatched a diamond engagement ring off the hand of a bride-to-be while she was having a seizure.
Charlotte Hardy-Pickering, 23, had the seizure when walking through North Park in Bootle on Tuesday at around 10am.
As she lay on the ground defenceless, a man pretended to comfort her, but while holding her hand he slipped the white gold ring off her finger.
Speaking to the ECHO, heartbroken Charlotte today made an emotional appeal for the jewellery to be returned.
She said: “I feel really violated and upset. During and after a seizure I’m at my most vulnerable and someone has taken advantage of that.”
I wish I was able to say it is a shock but sadly it isn’t. I have had item stolen / disappear during a Seizure in the street many times so I simply stopped carry money or things worth money
