Time listed is when discovered. Bike was last seen evening of 10/4. Bike was locked to rack in interior courtyard outside 31-unit condo building, accessible through gate to alley. Gate should have been locked (requiring key to open), though I suspect was not. Cable was wrapped around bike rack, and connected to bike with a u-lock through its loops and around the bike frame. The cable loops were cut and the bike and U-lock missing.
