A PASSENGER who was travelling to Kiveton Park in a taxi with two unknown men had a "high-value" Rolex watch stolen during the journey.
Police are appealing for information about the theft which was reported on Sunday, April 21.
The man got into a Hackney carriage on Division Street, Sheffield, after a night out in the city, at about 3am, when two men asked if they could share the car back to Rotherham, a spokeswoman for South Yorkshire Police said.
When the victim got out of the taxi in Kiveton Park at around 4am, he noticed that his "high-value" Rolex watch (pictured) had been taken.
Officers are asking for the public to help them trace the two men who shared the man's taxi.
One man is described as Asian, mid to late 20s, average build with long dark hair and a beard. He is believed to have been wearing dark-coloured jeans with a black top.
The second man is described as Asian, mid to late 20s, average build with dark hair that is longer on the top and short around the sides. He is believed to have been wearing grey tracksuit bottoms and a top with a motif.
Police said investigations were ongoing and officers wanted to speak to anyone who had any information.
They were particularly keen to speak to the taxi driver.
Anyone with information should contact 101, quoting incident number 171 of April 21.
