A thief snatched a South San Francisco woman’s wheelchair this week while she waited for a ride to a doctor’s appointment, according to police. The 65-year-old woman was inside her home on the 100 block of Gardiner Avenue around 10:15 a.m. on Wednesday when the theft occurred, police said. She was waiting for a Redi-Wheels van to pick her up for a doctor’s appointment, so her caregiver set the wheelchair and a walker outside on the sidewalk.

When the caregiver stepped back inside for a moment, a man allegedly grabbed the wheelchair and walker and placed them in the back of an unmarked white bobtail truck with a roll-up door. The caregiver tried to stop the man, who was described only as a Latino male in his 30s with a slender build, but he drove away.  The suspect was last seen driving on Chapman Avenue toward Airport Boulevard.
