Police are looking for a man who they say was caught on camera stealing a package with shoes for a child with special needs right off a family's doorstep in Morris Park.
Surveillance video appears to show the man walking up the stairs, taking the brown box and walking back down to a car. The man also appears to relieve himself before driving off.
The box contained specific shoes for a 4-year-old boy who has a neurological disorder and needs to wear braces to help align his feet.
These shoes would fit both the braces and his feet as he continues therapy to walk independently.
His mother says she wants the man caught and to help make people aware.
