A man was caught on camera apparently stealing a new bicycle that was delivered to a Providence family for a 3-year-old girl's birthday party.

Police told NBC 10 News that they are looking for a dark-skinned man who was seen taking a box containing a pink bike valued at $100 after the package was delivered to a house on Willow Street on Monday.

Jack Ryan, a witness, told police he saw UPS drop off the package to a rear door of the home.

Within approximately five minutes, the suspect, who was wearing a red sweatshirt, stole it.

“I would like to discourage package theft from my neighborhood and all neighborhoods,” Ryan said. “I hope my community can work together, let each other know, and keep their eyes out. I recommend cameras to everyone.”

While the bike has not been recovered, video surveillance captured the incident.

Contact police if you recognize the suspect or have information about the crime.
