LEONIA — Police are asking for help in identifying two men who were caught on video stealing a wheelchair from a 14-year-old boy suffering from cerebral palsy.

The motorized wheelchair, valued at $12,000, was stolen Thursday around 3:35 p.m. on the 20 block of Broad Avenue. One of the thieves was caught on video joyriding away from the scene, police say.

The thieves were described as:

• A dark-haired Hispanic teenage male, at 5 feet and 6 inches and 150 pounds. He was wearing a white Adidas shirt, black and white shorts, black sneakers and black socks, and was carrying a black leather back pack.

• An Asian male in his late teens, 5 feet and 6 or 7 inches and 140 pounds. He was wearing a black-and-white striped shirt, black shorts and black sandals.

The Leonia Police Department is offering a $1,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest of the thieves.

In a post on their Facebook page, the department told the suspects to "do the right thing."

"Turn yourselves in and help us return the wheelchair," they said.
