A medical stroller belonging to a disabled child was stolen from a Cranston porch this morning.

The device belongs to wheel chair bound Ilianna Perez. She's a 10 year old with cerebral palsy.

In her house she uses this mechanic chair but anytime she ventures outside her mother says she uses the $4300 stroller because it is easier to travel with.

The family noticed it was missing early this morning.

"Horrible, I can't believe someone would do that, especially to a handicap child you know,” says mother Yolanda Gonzalez. “This is my property, my porch so no one should be touching our stuff."

"I feel like why would a person take such a thing," says Ilianna Perez

The medical stroller was specialized just for Ilianna, even designed in her favorite color turquoise.

If you have any information about where it may be you're asked to contact Cranston police.
