Thief using wheelchair steals Purses in Manhattan

Mia’s opinion- As a person who uses a wheelchair full time I noticed three things that to me prove he is not permanantly disabled but an able bodied person faking.
1/ His position in the chair he is completely off blanced when you havebeen in a chair for a while you get your center of balance for efficient pushing.
2/ the position of his arms when pushing noone pushes like that who is disabled.
3/ his chair it is a cheap hire chair you pay by the month for or buy from costco, this chair is designed for you to be ushed the sides are too high if you trie to push this chair all day it would rub your arms raw.
I’m not saying every disabled person has the money for a custom chair ,but like I did at first you customise your cheap chair after my first gash on my arm from the high metal sides they were gone and pushing was easier. to my other wheelie friend check out the pics see what you think?

This is one wheely bad man. A sticky-fingered crook in a wheelchair swiped a purse from a woman who got up to dance at a Times Square hotspot, police sources said Thursday.

The man has also suspected of having swiped handbags in Havana Central, Nobu and the Marriot Marquis Hotel.

Police said the unidentified suspect entered Havana Central on W. 46th St. near Seventh Ave. in Times Square at 9:45 p.m. on Sept. 3 and rolled off with a bag a 40-year-old woman put on her chair when she decided to hit the dance floor.

A few days earlier — on Aug. 30 — the free-wheeling fiend was seen rolling through Nobu 57 on W. 57th St. near Sixth Ave. at 11:30 p.m., where he police say he grabbed a pricey Coach purse a 34-year-old diner had placed under the bar.

He then left, using the credit cards in the purse to buy food at a nearby pizzeria a short time later, officials said.

Police believe that the suspect’s disability is genuine and his wheelchair is not a prop.

Surveillance images taken near the restaurant show the thief — a Hispanic man dressed in purple — making his getaway, according to sources.

Investigators believe the thief may also be responsible for rolling by a 42-year-old woman talking to a concierge at the Marriott Marquis Hotel on Broadway near W. 45th St. on Aug. 19 and taking a satchel bag containing an iPhone, some credit cards and several pieces of jewelry.

Investigators believe that the thief may actually be disabled — and not using the wheelchair as a prop.

“Every time we’ve seen him, he’s in the wheelchair,” a police source said.

Cops are asking anyone with information regarding this man’s whereabouts to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential

I am a disabled woman who through no fault of my own has wheels under my ass. I rely on the decency and common sense of local, state and federal goverments, as well as the retail community to abide by the disabled access laws and provide adequate ramps, disabled toilets, and not use them as store rooms or broom closets. This blog exists to find the offenders and out them, inform them, and report them if necessary and shame them into doing the right thing when all else fails.
