CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Police are looking for a man who they say walked into a hospital in Charlotte and stole gaming systems used by children who are being treated for cancer.

The incident happened at Carolinas Medical Center on Wednesday, Dec. 8, around 4:23 p.m.

According to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department, the treatment center was closed at the time and none of the children came in contact with the thief.
