We witnessed and videotaped a bike robbery yesterday near us at 2100 Flagler Place NW.
It started when we saw a bike coming into the alley behind Flagler with kids who we know have been in trouble recently and when we were taking a picture of that bike on the off chance it was stolen, a friend of theirs then brazenly stole a bike from our next door neighbor's yard.
We were able to videotape it. We then gave the boys an hour to help return said bike and when they weren't able to do that, our neighbor called the police. The police then said they would canvass the area. Anyhow, the bike we originally photographed before the robbery which we saw again today is in the attached photo in case it does belong to someone.
The kid who stole the bike we actually know by the name of Ryan and he is in the neighborhood every day although he might be lying low for a while now. The bike he stole is very expensive. It is a "Surly", white mountain bike.
We will keep our eyes open and hope everyone else can too...
