One sunny summer afternoon, a robber marched into the home of an 88-year-old pensioner and stole money while the old man sat helplessly in a wheelchair.
It was July 10th, a hot summer day, so 88-year-old man Dennis Birch opened his door to let in some air. Dennis sat in his wheelchair and—presumably—spent some time gazing and admiring the outdoors.
His moment of peace came to an abrupt halt when an intruder marched into Dennis’s home and ruined his pleasant afternoon. The robber walked past, saw an open door, a man in a wheelchair, and decided it was his right to walk inside.
The man sat motionlessly while the intruder distracted him, took his wallet, and walked away. Dennis couldn’t do anything, but sit and watch the robber steal from him.
Dennis’s son, Paul Daley, watched the footage unfold. Thankfully, they had CCTV footage of the robbery! And Paul was “shocked” when he saw how the robber carefully distracted his dad.
He said: “The guy who does it - he is a professional. The way he conceals his actions, this guy is a pro and we'd definitely like him caught and prosecuted." Did the police find the robber? What did the thief take from Dennis? Tune into our video to find out.
