Two robbers in Wigan have stolen rings from a man's fingers, while he was recovering from anaphylactic shock.

He was knocked unconscious in Ashton-in-Makerfield, after he'd gone outside to get some fresh air in the early hours of the morning on Monday 24th January. When he came round he noticed his watch was missing and one of the robbers was taking his rings off. Both robbers then walked off towards Low Bank Road.

One is thought to be about 23 years old with short black hair, around 5ft 10in tall, and of athletic build. The second about the same height and age, slimmer, with short fair hair and an earring in his left ear.

The stolen items include a Storm watch, a gold ring with a peacock design, another gold ring with diamonds
and some money.
