A King Street man was not only robbed overnight Wednesday, the crooks took his prosthetic leg, Greater Sudbury Police said in a news release.

Two men entered his home around 1 a.m., the release said, and robbed him while he was asleep.

“The two suspects took a pair of pants that were lying on the occupant’s bed, which contained the occupant’s wallet and prosthetic leg,” the release said. “The suspects then immediately fled the residence.”

While the victim didn't see the men, police are hoping someone in the area saw something, or have information that can help them locate the thieves.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 705-675-9171 or call Crime Stoppers at 705-222-TIPS (8477).
