A young woman has had rings stolen from her hand by two men as she checked her watch when they asked her for the time in Poleglass.

At around 9.30pm on Sunday, the 22-year-old woman was walking from Pembrook Loop Road across the path towards Old Colin when two men approached her. When she checked her watch, both males grabbed her by the wrists and one took rings off her hand.

The pair ran off in the direction of Old Colin.

Both robbers are described as wearing dark clothing with their faces covered and both spoke with local accents.

The number to call is 101.
