Kristen tackles a bike thief

Security camera footage captures man casually breaking a lock with a bolt cutter to steal a bike. Kristen and an unidentified friend — who apparently see the theft through the office window — take quick action, run outside and block the would be thief’s escape.

Unlike some previous thwarted bike theft attempts captured on video, there doesn’t seem to be any retributive citizen justice in this example.

    Great job by the woman to knock the thief off the bike. But why did the 3 guys following here just let the thief walk away?

    I read that she initially thought it was her bike, but later realized that it belonged to a co-worker.
