Stolen Bike: Please Return

We got this a couple of hours ago. If you know anything, let Rebekah know in the comments.

Our 8 year old son’s bike was stolen off our front porch on the 1100 block of N. 35th St yesterday morning at 3:33am, May 3. We caught it on video, see video to see the thief in action. Also is a picture of the bike. While we filed a police report, we really just want the bike back. So if the bike re-appears, we will drop the matter – no questions asked. Otherwise, if you see the thief and/or bike, please send me a message atasecondaryemail33@yahoo.com.

It has never been a good idea to leave bikes outside in this city.

Nor unchained! Make thieves work if they want to steal.

It was a child’s bike; not something I would think anyone would steal. Also it was on their porch, not laying in the yard or on the sidewalk. The thief literally had to go up to their front door to take it. Please stop blaming the parents. We shouldn’t tolerate thieves nor make excuses for them.

Okay. I lived in church hill, twice. I’ve had things taken from my locked car, walked up and taken directly from my porch, and people breaking into my backyard. It’s church hill. You expect this when you move to a city in general but especially in an area WELL KNOWN for this type of behavior. At this point it is your fault…I see Multiple reports of break ins, thefts, etc…in that area…you need to not leave bait literally right out in the open and take care of your belongings, put them away.

I agree. You really should keep all four of your children’s bikes and you and your wife’s bikes in your living room if you don’t want them stolen. ?

I had my bike stolen in the suburbs growing up. Irrespective of location, an unlocked bike is just about the easiest crime of opportunity there is.

Totally right. You know what we should do? Blame the victim. Not the people who stole a child’s bike. It’s not the thief’s fault that they walked onto someone else’s property and stole something that didn’t belong to them.

Good point, my comment was more to the folks who are blaming the neighborhood, but I see now that was not clear.

I swear I saw it today at the corner of Broad and 12 at the Pulse Bus stop. I noticed it because it was small and not locked up. I thought it was unusual.
