I familiari del piccolo Caleb avevano appena comprato la console per aiutarlo nel lungo periodo di degenza in ospedale previsto dopo essersi sottoposto a una delicata operazione
La notizia diffusa dalla sede di Oklahoma City di Fox25News ha dell’incredibile: un uomo ha avuto la mostruosa idea di rubare la console Nintendo Switch di un bambino di sei anni recatosi in ospedale assieme alla propria famiglia per sottoporsi a una delicata operazione.
L’uomo, non ancora identificato dalle autorità locali, si è impossessato della console mentre la famiglia si trovava nella metropolitana vicina all’hotel La Quinta di Oklahoma City. La famiglia, recatasi in città per assistere il piccolo Caleb in attesa di sottoporsi a un’operazione, aveva appena comprato la console Nintendo Switch per allietare il figlio nel periodo di degenza in ospedale.
Nella speranza che la polizia di Oklahoma City rintracci al più presto il ladro per riunire Caleb alla sua amata console (e sua madre al proprio portafoglio), di seguito trovate l’articolo integrale con cui i colleghi di Fox25News hanno dato la notizia:
- Caleb Kindle,6, had surgery for a condition called curly toes on May 31. His family purchased a new Nintendo Switch gaming system to help him through it, but it and other items were stolen as the family stayed at a metro La Quinta hotel.
“He didn’t just take the gaming system,” Caleb’s mother, Cassy Kindle, said. “He stole my wallet which had $250 in cash, my credit cards, my debit card.”
Now, Midwest City police have released surveillance pictures of the suspect.
Cassy Kindle said apparently the door didn’t lock completely behind them when they went to breakfast. She said she watched the surveillance video of the suspect breaking in.
“He notices that the door is open so he goes down to the stairway for about two minutes,” she said. “He stays in the stairway and notices that nobody’s around and goes to our door again and he’s looking around making sure nobody’s in there and that’s when he walked in.”
The suspect also tried to use stolen credit cards, but the purchases were denied. The Kindle’s also had to replace two keys that are worth $500 each and then bought Caleb a new gaming system for over $300 at a local store.
“We went ahead and my mother-in-law was there,” Cassy Kindle said. “She just put it on a credit card and was like, ‘OK, we’ll just take care of it this way.’”
After, Caleb was in a boot for three weeks. He’s now doing better. The family just wants the suspect caught.
