Handicapped Man robbed, thrown in the street and chair taken
he Voice learned on Tuesday, that last week thugs attacked a man in a electric wheelchair on his way home after shopping for food.
When the miscreants accosted him, they took his food, threw him out of the chair, took the chair, and left him lying there on the road. The chair was later found ditched a few blocks away without its batteries.
If the man had pepper-spray, he may have been able to thwart the apparent drug-fuelled melee. But, citizens are not allowed to carry it because of the puritans who run the show. The honourable ones in office have made it so only the bad guys have pepper spray and guns. The rest of us are at their mercy.
The Voice's source, a friend of the victim, and also in a chair, never leaves home without pepper spray. So, he's prepared to break the law to protect himself, or be easy pickins' for thieves.
If anyone has information about this heinous crime contact the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611 or, should you wish to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
