Have you seen this bracelet?

It came off one of two men who attacked a woman and her 18-year-old daughter in the driveway of their Peoria home as they unloaded groceries from their car.

Peoria police say that on July 23 at about 9 p.m., two men accosted the women,  threw them to the ground, repeatedly kicked and punched them, and also used a baton to beat one of the women on her head and shoulders. The attackers made off with a purse, and two diamond rings -- one from each of the women.

During the attack, one of the women yanked a bracelet from the suspect. It is a magnetic-style bracelet with an elastic band.

Both men were described as either black or Hispanic, 17 to 20 years old, about 5-foot-8 and weighing between 140 and 150 pounds. They were wearing dark "hoodie" type sweatshirts over their heads, a black face mask or bandana, and dark colored pants.

These goons go through the trouble of masking their identities with hoods and face masks, but don't think about shedding personal items -- like a bracelet?

Real bright, this pair.

The men ran from the house, which is in the 13000 block of North 78th Drive in Peoria, and were seen getting into the back seat of a white older model, American made sedan, possibly a Lincoln-Continental or Oldsmobile.

Think hard because a reward of up to $6,000 is being offered for information leading to the arrest of these goons.
