PPB Needs Help In Locating Girls Stolen Bike
Posted: November 16th, 2009 10:08 AM

Portland Police Officers from East Precinct are asking for the public’s help in locating an adult tricycle that was stolen from two 13-year-old autistic girls. The bike was donated to the girls by OHSU personnel as part of a grant that donates to developmentally challenged children. The tricycle is very special to the twin girls and is something the family could not afford to buy on their own.

The all red bike was stolen from the family’s outdoor shed in the area of the 8900 Block of Southeast Stephens Street on November 14th or November 15th. The trike is similar to a Tri-Star brand adult three wheeled bike but the actual brand is unknown at this time. A similar tricycle can be viewed at www.cyclesportsandfitness.com/images/Tristar-red-LG.jpg.

The family is available for interviews. Anyone interested in this story can contact the Portland police PIO for contact information.
