Sheriff's authorities said two men got out of a car and forced the silver band with engraved roses off the woman's finger just a few days before Christmas. One man told her she was in the wrong neighborhood.

Authorities said both men had Caribbean accents and fled in what appeared to be a rusty older model Lincoln or Cadillac that was light blue, purple and black. Detectives released a sketch of the suspects Wednesday.
