(Scroll down for video) A blind woman in Canada, was left stranded in a city far away from her home after a cruel woman befriended her and stole $800.

The blind woman who was identified as Sally of Sudbury was heading to a doctor’s appointment in Toronto when she was befriended by the robber.

Sally’s daughter Mandy Taylor said that her mother insisted on going to the doctor’s appointment alone in order to regain a little of her independence.

While Sally was traveling on a bus to Toronto, the suspect sat next to the blind woman and began chatting with her.

The suspect told Sally about her hard life and that she did not have a place to stay.

Sally allowed the woman to accompany her to a hotel room, where they chatted for hours.

When Sally went to use the bathroom, the woman stole all the money from the blind woman’s purse.

When Sally came out of the bathroom, she noticed that the woman was gone.

Sally went to the hotel lobby looking for the woman, but she was told that she left in a taxi.

Sally later realized that all her money was missing.

She had a total of $800 in her purse.

With no money to pay for her hotel or food, Sally called her daughter for help.

Mandy set up a Go Fund Me to help her stranded mother.

Mandy wrote: “My blind mother went on a medical trip to Toronto. She usually never goes alone because she’s totally blind.

“She lost full vision 9 years ago. She met someone on the bus who took advantage of her and stole all the money she had out of her wallet.

“Now she’s stuck in Toronto, and her bus leaves tomorrow at 11:00 a.m. She is devastated. I am stuck in a different city unable to help her, and I already have sent her everything I had in my account. It’s still not enough for her taxi and ticket home.”

So far, people donated $3,000.

Update: Police arrested 36-year-old Angela Bluecoat of Manitoba.

Bluecoat was charged with one count of theft under $5,000.
