(Scroll down for video) A couple was arrested, charged and convicted of a crime, which angered many people.

The couple kidnapped a wheelchair bound man, and then robbed him.

Adam Webster, 38, and Sarah Harcourt, 35, of the United Kingdom, grabbed the man while he was selling books at the Vauxhall Resource Centre, a community center in Norwich.

Stephen Dooley, 38, who is a quadriplegic, was minding his own business when the two suspects walked into the center and wheeled him out.

People outside did not suspect that anything was wrong, and it appeared as though they were good Samaritans who were helping a disabled man cross the road.

However, when the two, who were said to be heroin addicts, got him to a quiet spot, they asked Dooley to hand over all his cash.

Dooley had only £6 (about $10) on him. He handed it over to the couple and they took off. Dooley then managed to get himself back to the center where he called the police.

The couple was arrested 40 minutes later after police received surveillance video. Sadly, the wheelchair bound man was very traumatized by the incident and is afraid to go outside.

Webster was sentenced to 6 years behind bars and Harcourt was jailed for 4 years and 12 weeks, for the crime.
