Low-life pair steal ring and hot food from lone woman

IPSWICH detectives are on the hunt for two women who bashed and robbed an Ipswich train commuter.

The 49-year-old woman was targeted after arriving on a train just before midnight on Wednesday, with her assailants ripping a ring from her finger in what police believe was a random attack.

Detective Acting Senior Sergeant Dave Hunter said the victim was confronted by the two women after she stepped out onto Bell St.

"We believe they were on the train at the same time - probably travelling in from the Brisbane side," Snr Sgt Hunter said.

The offenders first attempted to steal the woman's handbag, before punching her in the head.

After failing to snatch the bag, the offenders removed a ring from the victim's finger and stole a bag of hot food. The victim sustained a cut and bruising to her face.
