The bike was stolen sometime between the evening of Wednesday, August 2, 2017 and Sunday, August 6, 2017 from the bike room in my apartment building at 5480 S Hyde Park Blvd. The bike was locked to a rack in the bike room (using a combination cable lock looped through the frame and front wheel), and had 2 kids' bikes locked to it (with a cable looped through the two frames). The combination cable lock was cut near the locking mechanism and left on the rack, still attached to the 2 kids' bikes. I had previously reported the possible theft of other bikes from the bike room to our management company (Mac Properties) on July 28, 2017.
