NBC 10 viewer gifts bike to toddler after brazen theft
NBC 10 News is sharing a happy update to a story about a thief who allegedly stole a bicycle that was purchased as a little girl’s birthday present.
A UPS driver delivered a package to a home in Providence on Monday.
Moments later, a witness said he saw a man going up the back steps and stealing the box, which contained a pink bike.
Surveillance footage confirmed the man’s claims.
The bike was a birthday present for a 3-year-old girl, so a generous NBC 10 News viewer wanted to step up and pay it forward by getting her a brand new one. The viewer brought the bike to the station to replace the stolen one on Wednesday.
The next day, NBC 10 surprised the birthday girl with the new bike.
She was also gifted a helmet, as well as a doll.
Meanwhile, the suspect is still at large.
Contact police if you recognize the suspect or have information about the crime.
