A female Eagles fan stole a prosthetic leg from a Vietnam vet during Sunday night's blowout win over the New York Giants.

Sonny Forriest Jr., famous for serenading fans at Phillies and Eagles games, claims the limb was stolen when the woman jumped into his lap in the parking lot at Lincoln Financial Field.

"That broad took my leg," he told WCAU.

Forriest Jr. was sitting in his motorized scooter while singing for fans when the depraved heist occurred, he explained.

"I was singin' a song and a young lady came up, snatched my leg off," he recalled to the station. "She took off, she broke my mic."

Forriest Jr. often takes off his prosthetic leg while singing, according to WCAU.



"There were some friends who were partying with the leg, then they put it back," said the vet.

He was packing up to leave for the night when the young female fan approached him.

"She jumped in my lap," Forriest Jr. said. "She gripped my leg and I didn't even know it. I looked down and she took my leg! Then she disappeared! A young lady came up, snatched my leg off my chair and took off!"

He told WPVI she apologized for breaking his microphone before taking off.

"She said, 'I will pay you for it.' I said, 'That's alright baby go ahead and have a good time,' and then she disappeared," Forriest said.

When asked to sing a song about the woman who took his leg, Forriest Jr, the son of Coasters guitarist Sonny Forriest, gladly obliged.

"It's a shaaaame, the way you mess around with old men!" he sang. "It's a shaaaame the way you hurt me!"

Police later recovered the leg at a suburban train station and returned it to Forriest Jr., according to WPVI.

Investigators are looking for three women they believe were involved in the theft.

You stay classy, Philadelphia.
