Deputies in Florida are looking for two people accused of posing as inspectors and attacking an elderly couple earlier this week, the Orange County Sheriff's Office said.

Investigators said the man and a woman knocked on the couple’s door in Pine Hills, located west of Orlando, claiming to be home inspectors.

The duo then convinced the couple, who are in their 80s, to let them into the backyard.

While there, the man grabbed a ring from the older woman's hand, then knocked her to the ground, deputies said.

The pair then took off in a gray pickup truck.

The man is described as heavyset, about 40 years old and around 6 feet tall with an earring in each ear.

Deputies released a sketch of the man but did not release one of his female companion, who is described as in her 20s with long black hair.
