My 8 year old had a green Diamondback bike. His first new bike that he had for only one month. He had locked it up at El Carmelo, and left it there on Friday Nov. 9 after school while he went for a play date. Stupid me! I should have had him bring it home before the playdate. But it was locked up and neither of us thought that it would be taken.
Well we were wrong. I know that much worse things happen, yet I feel sad that this is his first experience of someone stealing something kind of big from him.
I am wondering if anyone else has had their child's bike taken recently, and any words from the wiser that might help us.
