Batteries not included

In the wake of the City Grill shootings, mayor Brown announced this week that downtown Buffalo is a safe place to be. Tell that to this disabled guy who had his crutches and the battery to his wheelchair stolen on Thursday...

Man robbed of crutches, battery to his scooter
The Buffalo News

A man reported to Central District police that he was robbed Thursday evening of his crutches while at a downtown parking lot.

The victim said he was at a parking lot at 202 S. Division Street at about 6:30 p. m. when someone took his crutches as well as the battery to his motorized scooter. The crutches were worth $45 and the battery costs $1,300.
Hopefully, the victim's family will catch the thief before police and give him a reason to need crutches.
