A U.K. man was lying injured and bleeding on the ground following a brutal motorcycle accident, but that reportedly didn’t stop one criminal from going through his pockets and robbing him.
Craig Stevens, a former Royal Air Force pilot, said that he begged the man to stop, but that the culprit ignored him, stealing cash before fleeing the scene of the accident on June 7 in Hayes, West London.
Stevens says he is disturbed and in disbelief over what unfolded.
“I cannot believe that someone could do that to me, when I was so helpless and in need,” he told the Daily Mail. “I could feel his hands going through all of my pockets, I couldn’t move. I was trapped, in pain and heavily bleeding.”
Stevens, who is recovering in the hospital, continued: “I was pleading with him to stop, to help me instead of stealing from me but he carried on. I feel angry. I feel violated.”
Luckily, a nurse saw him on the ground and ended up helping out.
Stevens’ injuries were serious. In addition to a broken arm, his leg was cut deep down to the bone, which is serious considering that he has leukemia and is on blood thinners.
He has had two operations and a skin graft since last week’s accident, according to the Daily Mail.
Stevens said he is also frustrated with police, who agreed to investigate the accident but apparently not the robbery.
