SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — A man with cerebral palsy was robbed of his special bicycle during a senseless crime last week.
The victim was riding his special three-wheeled bicycle on Juan Road and Rancho Silva Drive at 1:30 a.m. on Friday when two men walked up and pointed gun at the man and ordered him to hand over his money and his bicycle, said Sacramento Police spokesman Norm Leong.
