His name is Ben, and he has quite a story to tell. It's a story that unfolded a few steps from his home, and it's the reason he ordered a Mace® Brand pepper spray gun.
Ben is disabled, and lives in an apartment building in Minnesota that has an underground parking garage. That's where he kept his mobility scooter, a Wrangler with a scooter pack canopy.
Earlier this year, as he approached his scooter's normal spot, he couldn't believe his eyes. What he saw was far from normal. He saw two men and a woman in the act of stealing his beloved scooter. He says he wasn't able to stop them, and the thieves were able to drive away since they lifted his scooter into a trailer.
Ben says he had "zero recourse," and he doesn't want something similar to ever happen again. That's why he now owns a Mace® Brand pepper spray gun.
Ben emailed us to say because of a freak brain injury, he's paralyzed on his left side. He has trouble talking, and needs the scooter to help him get around.
He summed up his experience this way:
This makes me feel comfortable and more able to stop would be thieves. 💪
Thanks MACE...you guys are awesome!
Unfortunately, police in the community where Ben lives tell us they have not been able to locate his scooter or the people who swiped it, but police say it is an "active case."
We'll keep you updated on what happens next.
