Indianapolis—"It's rough being in a wheelchair. You can't get around very much in the winter time," John Dalton said.
Life is hard enough for 64-year-old John Dalton. His portable oxygen and medical needs are in his front basket as he wheels around in a scooter unable to walk outside his small apartment.
He said what happened inside his east side studio apartment was awful. He was in bed getting ready to sleep at 1:00 a.m. Tuesday.
"Someone beat on my door," said Dalton. "I opened it 3-4 inches."
The woman told John she needed help but then the 250 pound woman barged in.
John fell out of his wheelchair.
The suspect then allegedly sat on him and went through his pockets looking for money.
"[The attack] made me feel like I was nobody, like I was a weak person who couldn’t defend myself," he said.
The suspect made off with his wallet. It contained some credit cards, a debit card and his ID but no money. She also took his cell phone that had all of his doctors' numbers and medical listings he needs for his care.
He doesn't know how he'll get them back.
"There's a lot of cold blooded people in this world," said one of John's friends who works at the east side motel he lives in. "It's just really sad someone would go to that length and they didn't get anything."
