John Gray’s scooter was taken from outside his home at Wisbech Road, March, between 9am on Monday and 9am on Tuesday.
The scooter was a royal blue collapsible Shoprider with four small wheels.
Mr Gray, who suffers from leg, hip and back troubles, said: “I got complacent and left it outside my house. I used to take the battery out but I stopped doing it.
“I got on the scooter to get the paper on Monday morning but, when I got up on Tuesday morning to do the same thing, it had gone.
