CLEVELAND - Days after surveillance video captured thieves stealing the scooters from three little girls on Cleveland’s west side, two good Samaritans are stepping up to donate scooters to the girls.

Last Tuesday, a neighbor’s security camera captured two thieves riding off on the girl’s scooters.

The suspects later came back, took a tv, and a third scooter.

"It's disappointing to have them ask every day. We tell them the cops are working hard to find out where the scooters are," said Tyler Smith, father.

"We were watching the news and it just broke our heart that someone would steal from these little girls," said Kelly and Craig Payne of Lorain.

The couple felt moved to donate their daughter’s scooters, which are barely used and sitting in the basement.

"We have girls ourselves so we know what it’s like if they lose something or if something breaks. But to have someone steal from these girls in this manner," said Craig.

Grinning ear to ear, the girls rode back and forth outside their home on Crossburn Avenue.

"It’s a great feeling. I'm very happy that someone was nice enough to donate scooters to our children," said Smith.
