Good Samaritan scares off bike thieves from rooftop
On Saturday, April 26 a Good Samaritan helped prevent an attempted robbery when he came to the aide of two bicyclists who were under attack from bullies who wanted to take their bikes. The two youngsters were riding near Culmore Street and Towne Avenue when two male Hispanics in their mid-twenties jumped out of the bushes and attempted to steal the boys’ rides. A Claremont resident on his rooftop witnessed the attack and began to yell at the suspects, who then fled to their vehicle and took off - without the bikes. The suspects’ vehicle is described as a late model, white or light grey Honda Civic.
