Talking now, Edison reported: “We are shaken and afraid. They could appear again for the other bike they still left.
“They only bought away with my bike in the close. An additional neighbour recovered my wife’s bicycle – a Huge FastRoad – which experienced been still left in an alley.
“I feel the rear mudguard was dented for the duration of the theft, so the wheel seized, meaning they couldn’t experience it absent.
“I just cannot sleep at night time and I’m indignant as I was at function at the Royal Infirmary when they arrived.
“My spouse and daughter had been traumatized as well following obtaining to witness this attack in broad daylight.
