Suitcase Allegedly Stolen From Autistic Child
MOOSIC — A mother in Lackawanna County wants whoever stole her son’s Christmas present to give it back.
Shelley Toroli said her son Noah, 15, is autistic. This year Noah wanted a suitcase with swivel wheels, like the one his father uses when he leaves on deployment with the military.
Toroli said Noah got the suitcase Saturday afternoon and was playing with it out in the yard. He went inside for an hour, and when he returned, it was gone.
“And he ran to the end of the driveway where he left it, and he just kind of turned around and went, ‘Where is it? Where is it? Mom it’s stolen.’”
Toroli said several people who have heard Noah’s story have offered to get him a new suitcase.
