Fast-talking swindlers steal woman's necklace
A Saskatoon woman was the victim of a group of fast-talking swindlers who were able to rob her of a necklace, in broad daylight, police say.
Police said the swindlers targeted a 75-year-old woman who was walking along Taylor Street East, in the 4000 block, around 4 p.m. CST Thursday.
They said a car pulled up to the sidewalk and two people got out and approached the woman, with a sales pitch.
Police said the two, a man and a woman, used a "rapid and aggressive sales pitch" to sell the woman necklaces and rings.
"They hung two necklaces on the victim and removed the one she was wearing which was valued at $5,000 and quickly got back in their vehicle and fled the scene," police said.
They were asking anyone with information about the theft to contact them.
