Man charged with stealing autistic man’s birthday money

STAMFORD, Conn. — A 27-year-old Connecticut man has been charged with stealing $100 in birthday money from an autistic man in a crime that was captured by video cameras.

Police say they charged Steven St. Jacques of Stamford on Monday with second-degree larceny after a search of his home turned up clothing that matched those worn by the suspect in the video.

Police say they received important tips after posting the video of last Tuesday’s robbery on YouTube.

They say St. Jacques pretended to befriend the victim and then tricked him into handing over his money.

Members of the police union collected $1,300 and presented it to the victim on Monday.

St. Jacques has no listed phone number and could not be reached for comment. He was due in Superior Court on Tuesday.
