Following the theft of two gold chains in Norwich last week, police in Tuckswood are appealing for information.
The incident happened on Earlham Road between 3.50pm and 4.10pm on Friday, April 1.
The victim, a 70-year-old man, was approached by two women close to the junction with Edinburgh Road who offered him jewellery to buy.
One of the women handed the man items of jewellery including rings and a gold chain which she placed around the victim’s neck.
The man refused to purchase the items and the women took the jewellery back from him and left the scene.
When the victim returned home he found his two gold chains had been swapped for similar looking ones.
Both women are described as white, aged between 40 and 45 with shoulder length dark brown hair and wearing long multi-colour dresses.
Officers would like to hear from anyone who may have noticed anything suspicious in the area between the times stated or from anyone with information in relation to the suspect.
Anyone with information should contact PC Aaron Parker at Tuckswood Police Station on 0845 456 4567 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
