CLEARWATER, Fla. -- A 63-year-old Clearwater man is pleading for someone to return his electric scooter after it was stolen off his porch.

Clearwater police said the theft happened around Labor Day weekend.

Amos Kennedy said he had it outside charging when someone picked it up. It was stolen off his patio at his home on South Washington Avenue in Clearwater.

"Devastating. I'm hurt over it. I feel violated because someone came on my porch at my front door," said Amos Kennedy.

Kennedy said it is a unique scooter. It does not look like any others in the neighborhood. It is a purple scooter and has a black basket.

"That's my only means of getting to my grocery store and the laundromat," said Kennedy.

Kennedy said he is diabetic and high blood pressure. He also has issues with his spine and must walk with a cane. He said he cannot walk very far.

"I'm disabled and they disabled me more than what I am," said Kennedy.

He said he wants the person or people who stole his scooter to realize their mistake. He is asking for it back.

"Please stop taking people's things. You'll never be blessed. If you want to bring it back, bring it back. I'd appreciate my charger, my scooters, my chain and my lock," said Kennedy.
