Police are hunting two "cruel and cowardly" men who lured a partially-sighted man into a subway before attacking him for his mobile phone and cash.
The attackers befriended the 20-year-old victim, who also has cerebral palsy, in a takeaway in Broad Street, Wolverhampton.
The pair then led him to an underpass in Wulfruna Street where they kicked and punched the man down and robbed him.
The victim managed to call police from a payphone and was taken to hospital where he received treatment for his injuries.

West Midlands Police have released CCTV images of two suspects they want to speak to about the attack.
Detective Constable Simon Williams said: "This was a callous attack on a vulnerable man and I am appealing to anyone who recognises the pair to come forward.
"The man is obviously traumatised by his ordeal, he had been enjoying a night out in Wolverhampton when he was befriended by these cruel and cowardly thugs.

"The images are really clear and I am sure that someone knows who these two are.
"I would like to appeal to the men in the images to do the right thing and come forward. It is only a matter of time before we come knocking at their door."
