Thief pulls ring from woman's finger after entering her care home room

A THIEF pulled a gold ring from a woman's finger after entering her room in a care home.

Police have appealed for anyone with information about the gold full sovereign ring (pictured above) or the theft, which happened between October 17 and 18 at a home in Sterncourt Road, Frenchay.

Police say the 84-year-old victim, who had dementia, has died since the incident.
