Electric Wheelchair Stolen in Front of St. James Church From Disabled Man

Brian Daly, 32,  electric wheelchair was stolen last night in front of St James church. Brian has cerebral palsy and cannot get around without it.

Brian is pleading for whomever stole his wheelchair last night to return it promptly. The motorized wheelchair, which cost $10,000, was stolen outside of St. James Church on Gerritsen Avenue while Daly was attending a function inside.

The chair was uninsured and Daly is unsure how he’ll be able to afford a new one.

It was suggested we take up a donation.

Update! Donations are closed. We raised $1310!

Anyone who knows where it is please call the police.

This will be all over the evening news tonight.

When asked Brian said:

“I don’t know who you are. I don’t know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don’t have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my wheelchair go now, that’ll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don’t, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you.”

This is a joke Brian did not say this.

    How about a description of the electric wheelchair in question??

  • NF

    I thought I saw it between 8:30 and 9pm on the side of St. James, maybe the scrappers got to it thinking it was discarded. Has anyone checked the area scrap yards

    I was going to post “I’m at a lost for words” about this, but the words I would use here shouldn’t be posted.

    Unbelievable! Hope they catch the lowlife(s) that would do such a thing. Maybe there is a security camera in the area that caught it on video? Someone local might have a surveillance camera on their home or maybe a local business caught something usable.

    All I can say is, there must be a special place in hell for these low life scumbags.
    Hope it turns up with all the heat, and word being out there.

    Donations are closed? Only $210.00 was raised to replace a $10,000.00 wheelchair. That doesn’t even cover the tires.
