Man flees on Wal-Mart scooter after stealing $50

UNIONTOWN, PENNSYLVANIA (WKOW) -- According to police, a Pennsylvania man wearing a hospital gown stole $50 from his ex-girlfriend and tried to flee on a Wal-Mart-owned motorized scooter.

Craig David Jr., 32 of Smithfield, was charged with robbery and disorderly conduct on Wednesday.

Police say David had just been released from a hospital for injuries in a domestic dispute, when he was hit with a frying pan and a table leg.

David confronted his girlfriend Tuesday night to get money for his prescription medication.  Police say, however, that he grabbed $50 from her and scooted away.
