An Arizona man was arrested earlier this week after forcing a woman out of her wheelchair before trying to steal it.
Austin Shurbutt, 26, was arrested on Saturday afternoon for attacking a woman on a light rail in Phoenix, Arizona, last month and trying to steal her wheelchair, according to a Facebook post on Saturday from the Phoenix Police Department.
In a video released by the department, Shurbutt is seen wearing reindeer slippers and getting up from his seat as the train pulls into the station before seizing the woman’s wheelchair. At first, he appears to be trying to push the wheelchair out of the train car with the woman still in it. The woman resists, grabbing poles on either side of her to try to stay in place.
