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.
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.
