Oh my god... they were tourists. Sorry. There are plenty of safer places to pop the question. The subway would be safer. Someone ought to put warning signs at Central Park.
Jacunski got on one knee and popped the question to his girlfriend of six months, Mami Nagase, in a romantic spot at a gazebo in Central Park on Saturday night. She had just agreed to marry him when, they said, a gunman jumped from the bushes and yelled, "Give me your money and get on the ground!"
As Jacunski, 30, and Nagase, 24, got on the ground, he was able to slip the engagement ring off her finger and hide it in his pocket.
The robber took a Rolex watch from Nagase and $125 from Jacunski, who had planned to use it to pay for a romantic dinner at a French restaurant. The robber then ran away.
New Yorkers usually jog through Central Park during daylight and leave their Rolex's and wallets at home.
