NEW YORK (1010 WINS) — A pair of thieves stole a tourist’s engagement and wedding rings in Hell’s Kitchen on Tuesday, according to a report.

The 33-year-old Louisiana woman and her husband were waiting for a taxi on West 46th Street around 12:30 a.m. on Tuesday when she fell down, police told the New York Post.

A pair of bystanders approached the woman in an apparent attempt to help her up, but one of them ended up pulling her rings off her finger, the outlet reported.

When the woman’s husband tried to recover them, the bystander punched him in the neck and flashed a gun, according to the outlet.

The pair of thieves hadn’t been arrested as of Wednesday, the outlet reported. An investigation is ongoing.
