Incident Description

Alley or side passageway.
How long was the bike locked in this location?: 
7 hours
Incident Description: 
I parked the bike on the outside of the hospital wear I work at about 7:30 a.m., just outside the west side employee entrance. I normally park/lock the bike on the inside through a key-access, but that day the inside bike rack was full, and I was forced to lock the bike up on the outside bike-rack. I was leaving the hospital at about 3:30 p.m. and found my bike was missing with the u-lock on the ground; the cable I use to secure the front wheel was missing. The u-lock showed a clean cut through the metal. Based on the striations that could be seen on the cut portion makes me believe the u-lock was cut with an electric angle grinder.
