Thief with X-Box and IPod flees crutch-wielding girl

A courageous 11-year-old girl wielding her father’s crutch chased a fleeing burglar 500 metres to get her precious Xbox and iPod back.

Peter Sciascia, who is on crutches after breaking his leg, returned home with his three children and one of their friends on Tuesday afternoon and saw someone running out the back of his Otaki house.

“He just bolted,” Mr Sciascia said. “I hobbled around to see where he had gone. The kids went inside to see if anything was missing and I sent Rena out to the road to see if she could see him.”
