Man In Wheelchair Robs Jewelry Store

Now, hold on! How did he do it?

Stamford, Connecticut, police are seeking a robber who entered a jewelry store in a wheelchair,  then used pepper spray to subdue a clerk and got away with a Rolex watch!

Saturday afternoon the man, dressed in a suit with dark sunglasses and a hat,  rolled into Sidney Thomas Jewelry, and asked to see some merchandise.  Security cameras then show him pushing the chair back abruptly into another clerk, spraying them with pepper spray before grabbing the watch.

He then got out of the chair and fled on foot!   But he left behind fingerprints on the arms of the chair, and his hat – which authorities say could be used for DNA information if the fingerprints don’t lead them to the suspect.
