Police are appealing for information following an incident in Corringham where am elderly woman was dragged out of bed and forced to hand over her wedding ring.
Two men broke into an address in Thames Haven Road at around 4.30am on Wednesday, July 12. The woman was woken up by the men who dragged her out of bed and forced her to hand over her wedding ring. The suspects also stole a necklace and bank cards before threatening to harm the woman.
