Two men confronted a 65-year-old disabled man for money Wednesday afternoon in Stockton, only to steal his wheelchair.
George Miranda was out near Park Street and Airport Way around 12:30 pm, when he was approached by two men.
"...He asked me, 'Hey can you buy me a beer?', and I said, 'No, I don't have no money'… and that's when he pushed me out of my wheelchair and just took off with my wheelchair," Miranda said.
Miranda severely injured his left leg four years ago, and said all the tendons are gone.
"I can barely move it on its own…I have to use my hand to pick it up," said Miranda.
He said he can't get around unless it's with a wheelchair. A crutch only helps him travel for only one block.
Miranda said the wheelchair disappeared as quickly as the man who stole it.
"I don't know what I'm gonna do," he said.
Miranda has been living with his wife and dog in a small room at the Crest Motel for the last 6 months. The couple shares the wheelchair.
