BURNABY (NEWS1130) - One of two men accused of attacking a disabled woman on SkyTrain and running off with her tablet computer has been arrested.
Transit police say they hope to arrest the second suspect later today.
We took plenty of calls to our newsroom last night from people offering to replace Cassie Campbell's iPad. The theft definitely struck a nerve.
"I don't know, just the way they pulled her off the wheelchair, stepped on her, just really pissed me off," admits News1130 listener Raghbir Riarh.
"I just wish I was on the SkyTrain. Wish I could have done something else. It just makes me sick to see that people can treat other people like this," he asserts.
The iPad is Campbell's main means of communication, since she is deaf and has cerebral palsy. The attack happened on May 10th in Burnaby aboard SkyTrain.
