The bike was left locked on the sidewalk bike rack in front of my office building. Locked at approximately 8:30 AM and was gone by the time I left the office at around 4:30 PM. No camera footage could be collected. I was told by bank workers whose window faces bike rack directly that an older white caucasian male was seen outside and appeared to be "working" along the sidewalk near the rack. One of the workers remembered seeing sparks and only about a three-inch piece of my U-lock was left at the scene. The cuts were clean.
