CHS: Man bicycling inside Bartell’s store steals phone, crashes in parking lot

People from all walks of life ride bicycles in Seattle, including thieves with poorly-planned robbery schemes.

Here’s a bizarre report from Capitol Hill Seattle:

A clerk at the Harvard Market Bartell’s sustained minor injuries Saturday night when a man with a red mohawk and riding a bicycle inside the store attempted to steal a phone and make his getaway on wheels. According to the police report, the woman and another employee were able to recover the phone when the mohawked man crashed in the parking lot before riding from the scene on Harvard.

More details from the police report:

CHS also reports that the person suspected in the infamous Car2Go hit and run from March has still not been charged.

    Thanks for the update about the Car2Go hit and run — or lack of update, I suppose.

    I really have no sense of whether the King County prosecutor’s office is swayed by public comment, but it might be worth taking a moment and contacting their office to ask why no charges have been filed. The email address is here:

    Note that this is the same office that has yet to file charges against the hit-and-run driver who injured the young girl biking on the sidewalk in Kent.

    “it was then she realized he was straddling a bike…”

    “Clerks, they’re not here to serve you….” From the movie “Clerks.”

    Gotta love it. Minimum wage for minimum caring.
