What do you do when you think you see a theft in progress?
I just saw what I thought was a bike theft in front of my house on Park and 13th (dude was sketch, playing with the lock and another dude was in a car with the passenger door open, watching him). I wasn’t exactly sure what was going on, so I ran my 2 minute errand next door and asked the employees of the market if they had a bike locked out front, which they didn’t. I planned on calling the cops as soon as got in the house (I didn’t have my phone on me), but when I went back out, the front wheel was stolen and the men were gone. I feel bad that I didn’t say something to them, but as a woman I don’t feel very comfortable confronting two men over something I’m not sure is happening, especially when one of them saw me leave my house and knows where I live. I also feel lame for not having my phone on me, as I would have liked to at least taken video or photos to give to the cops. What would y’all have done in this situation? Thanks for any advice.
