STOCKTON, CA - A man's prosthetic leg was stolen during a robbery in downtown Stockton Thursday morning.

The 49-year-old man was walking to Walgreens around 10 a.m., near the area of Madison and Park streets, when he was approached by two suspects, Stockton police said.

The suspects demanded money from the man, but he told them he didn't have any. The suspects then kicked and punched the man; they then stole the man's prosthetic leg and cell phone, police said.

The man told police that the suspects laughed and then ran away from the scene.

One suspect was described as a Hispanic man in his 20s, 6' to 6'2" tall with a shaved head and a goatee; the second suspect was described as a Hispanic man in his 20s, 5'2" to 5'5" tall with a thin build.

Anyone with information is urged to call Stockton police.
