Tennessee Man Accused Of Pulling Friend In Wheelchair Onto Floor And Stealing $30 From Purse

A Tennessee man is now in police custody after pulling his friend out of her wheelchair and stealing money from her purse, Action News 5 reports.

On April 13th, deputies from the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office were notified about a robbery at a Millington Inn. When they arrived, the victim explained that Dylan Landrum, a friend of hers, had come to her motel room to ask for money. When she refused, the 31-year-old pulled her out of her wheelchair by her leg, and threw her onto the floor. He then began rummaging through her purse, grabbed $30 in cash along with her I.D., and fled. The victim, who uses a wheelchair due to having one leg, was left on the floor.

Landrum was located shortly after being reported to police, and was arrested. The suspect has been charged with robbery, but was then released from jail without having to pay bond. He is now scheduled to appear in court next week.
