Another bicycle was stolen last Thursday, but this time there was a witness to the crime, according to University Police.
The witness called 911 immediately when he observed two men stealing a bike around 6:30 p.m.
The witness reported seeing two black males near the bike rack at the Business building, according to J.D. Withrow of UP. The witness said one man acted as lookout while the other cut the bike’s cable lock.
After the lock was cut, the men took off – one riding the bike and the other walking alongside.
Police arrived on the scene in less than 60 seconds, according to police records, but the suspects were already gone.
The owner of the Trek mountain bike contacted police around 7 p.m. when he realized his bike had been stolen.
The suspects are described as two black males, both with thin builds, around 5 feet, 8 inches tall and weighing 150 pounds. One man was wearing a green shirt, and the other was wearing a red do-rag, a white T-shirt and blue jeans. The witness guessed that the suspects were between 27 and 30 years old.
UP asks anyone who sees anything suspicious to call UP immediately. Bike riders are advised to invest in a U-bolt style lock to deter thieves.

Coach Brian Gregory said Tuesday the Bulls didn’t play complete, 40-minute games in their two losses last week. It’s debatable if they did Wednesday night against East Carolina (11-18, 5-11) at the Yuengling Center, but it was more than enough to put up a 73-68 overtime win. “It’s funny. There were stretches where we played […]
