Surveillance video captured a gunman pulling a 72-year-old disabled veteran out of his vehicle, hopping into the vehicle and driving away Thursday night.

Sanford police found the stolen car but they are still searching for the two men seen in the video.

They got away with his wallet, cellphone, walker cane, oxygen tank and medication, police said.

"As a veteran, I am outraged by the conduct of the individuals in the surveillance video," Sanford Police Chief Cecil Smith said in a statement. "We are asking for assistance from the community to bring these individuals to justice as soon as possible as this matter is of great important."

About 8 p.m. Thursday, the veteran was heading to the store to buy some bread when a man walked up to his car in the 100 block of Country Club Circle — near the Goldsboro Elementary Magnet School.

"I want your vehicle and I'm going to take it," the gunman said, according to police.
