Outraged family of disabled man offer reward for details on men who robbed him
Outraged family of a severely disabled man who was robbed near Cheltenham are offering a reward for information about the culprits.
Wheelchair user Joe Teale, 31, was defenceless as two men swiped a £1,000 bracelet at Southam Lane car boot sale at 1.30pm on September 29.
His mum Joanne Hayward said: “We are offering a reward for information that leads to an arrest.”
The culprits are thought to be eastern European.
Joe suffered serious brain injuries in a car accident in 2001, leaving him wheelchair bound with seriously restricted movement and limited ability to communicate.
He was not able to raise the alarm when the robbers struck and could only watch on as they made off with the gold bracelet.
The crime, which happened at around 1.30pm, sparked disgust amongst the county’s disabled community.
If you have information call police on 101.
