GLENDALE, Colo. — A young woman with a disability had her scooter, her only mode of transportation and prized possession, stolen from the garage of her Denver home on Tuesday.
“There he is, walking right away with her scooter. There he goes,” Sky Williford’s mother said, narrating a neighbor’s security camera video that showed the crime happen.
The video shows two men drive by on a single scooter of their own. They stop, one man gets off and walks up their driveway. Seconds later, he walks back into the frame and walks off with the black scooter out of the garage.
“It’s just so terrible,” Sky’s mom said. “She’s just the best and it’s so hard to see her upset.”
Her mother, Cynthia Moses, tells Denver7 her daughter has a developmental disability. The scooter is her only way to get around, including to and from her job at King Soopers.
“It means everything to me because my family gave it to me,” Sky said.
She had purchased the 50cc Chicago GoMax scooter last year, after her grandfather passed away and left her a small amount of money. Sky’s mom says her daughter works part time at the grocery store, and can’t afford to buy a new one.
“I’m scared she’s not gonna be able to replace it and it’s gonna hurt her. And I hate seeing my little girl hurt,” her mom said.
