GLOUCESTERSHIRE Police is appealing to the public who went to the Southam car boot sale on Sunday, September 29 to contact them if they have information about a theft.
The victim, a 31-year-old man from Gloucester, has restricted movement and communication due to a brain injury.
He was sat in a car at the car boot sale on Southam Lane with his carer when the pair were approached by two men, both of whom were described as eastern European.
