“They must have known that she had a ring with her.”

Another eyewitness said a man who was parked next to the woman’s car tried to intervene. “He wanted to block the suspects, but his son had climbed out of the car and could not get back in fast enough.”

By this time the three men had sped off with the ring.

The witness said there were about 10 vehicles outside of the business at the time of the incident.
