PHILADELPHIA (KRON) — A popular street performer in Philadelphia is happy to have his prosthetic leg back after a woman stole it during Sunday’s Eagles-Giants NFL Game.
Sonny Forriest Jr. says he was sitting in his motorized wheelchair when a drunk woman jumped in his lap and broke his microphone. She offered to replace the mic but he told her to just go away. When she did, Forriest says he noticed she had taken his prosthetic leg which he had removed to be more comfortable.
Police say the woman took the leg onto the nearby subway. Transit workers found it on a train just after midnight and returned it to Forriest.
Detectives say they are examining surveillance video in hopes of finding the thief.
