A LONE raider who broke into the home of an 80-year-old woman snatched her wedding ring from her finger.
The cowardly thief broke into the woman’s home in Letterkenny, Co Donegal just after 5 am on Saturday morning.
The raider escaped with some jewellery and a small amount of cash.
The woman was slightly injured and had to be hospitalised for a time.
She has since been released from hospital and is understood to be recovering after her terrifying ordeal.
The raid was part of at least three incidents in the Glencar area of Letterkenny on Friday night.
Another house was also broken into while thieves also stole a car in the area.
The incidents have been slammed by the Mayor of Letterkenny, Cllr Pascal Blake who described them as “disgusting.”
