FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Robbers stole the wedding ring off the finger of a Florida mail carrier, authorities say.

Broward Sheriff's authorities say 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 say 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.
