A reader sends an account they witnessed Friday night:

“I am sitting at Shaw’s Tavern and a man just tried to steal a bike next to Bistro Boheme. The bike owner ran out of his house and attacked the attempted robber. Beat him to the ground and put him in a choke hold. The police didn’t come for 8 minutes. A few guys tried to get him to stop, but he told them to f$&@ off. The police responded and had to restrain the attempted robber from attacking the bike owner. The attempted robber is being questioned and the bike owner is being examined by EMTs.”
