Pregnant Naperville woman says wedding rings stolen at gunpoint

NAPERVILLE, Ill. (WLS) -- A pregnant woman says she was robbed in a busy Naperville parking lot, and what the thieves stole from her is irreplaceable.

The victim, who did not want to be named, said she was robbed at gun point in the parking lot of a Jewel Osco near the intersection of 95th Street and Route 59 Tuesday. She said the thieves took her wedding ring and wedding band, as well as her wallet. She was not injured, but is shaken.

Naperville police confirmed they are investigating the robbery.

"As I stood up from getting my keys I felt something hard in my back and a voice saying, 'Give me your wallet and your wedding ring.' After that everything just kind of, I kind of got tunnel vision. I felt dizzy, I didn't know what to do and I didn't want to turn around for fear that if I looked at them or whatever, you know, maybe, if they have a gun, that they'd possibly harm me even more," she said.

The victim said the robbery happened during the afternoon while school was in session. Police said they are reviewing surveillance video from the parking lot.

The victim said the two suspects drove a maroon car that looked like it was from the 1990s. She said the men came from behind and she did not see their faces.
