4 teens fail in bid to take wheelchair from womanbid

Four teenagers, one with a gun, attempted to rob a woman of her motorized wheelchair as she was traveling down North Huron Street, Toledo police said.

Janice Casey, 20, told police she has a red motorized wheelchair and was heading to a convenience store at Lagrange and North Huron streets Sunday when four men approached her. She said one held a gun to her head and told her to give them her wheelchair.

Ms. Casey told police that she started to get out of the chair and then used scissors to ward them off. The four fled.

Police have no suspects.
