‘It’s appalling’: Investigation underway after elderly man’s car stolen from Worcester pizza shop in broad daylight – Boston News, Weather, Sports – Boston, Massachusetts

Worcester, Massachusetts. (WHDH)-Police are looking for someone who stole a 76-year-old man’s idling car from a Worcester pizzeria at noon on Thursday.

Golden Pizza delivery driver Luis Gerald said he kept the car running while he went to pick up more orders around 1:15 pm. When he returned, his car was gone.

“I’m old and suddenly lost my car, paperwork and money,” Gerald said.

Golden Pizza Manager Dawn Eringi said he immediately called Gerald’s bank and insurance company because he was in the car when his credit card and cell phone were stolen.

“He was just surprised. He was beyond himself,” Eringi said. “His eyes were like tears, he had no words.”

Gerald, who said he had worked for the Worcester public school system for decades, recently got a pizza delivery job a month and a half ago and earned additional cash. He said the thief robbed him of his car as well as his livelihood.

“Don’t do it to anyone. You’ll be vulnerable, especially when you’re old and 74, like me. It hurts,” Gerald said.

Eringi says police want to find the stolen car and the person responsible for the crime.

“I think it’s horrifying. I hope they find the car, and I hope anyone who does it gets good punishment,” she said.
