A bike owner went in pursuit of a bike thief in New York City’s Hell’s Kitchen district, chasing down the thief in a van.
James Mansfield was loading bicycles into a van when a thief grabbed one of the bikes and rode off. Police say Mansfield then got in the van and gave pursuit, chasing the bike down a one-way street in the wrong direction.
Mansfield burned rubber after the man before he slammed into the thief and an innocent pedestrian at Ninth Ave, authorities said.
Witnesses say a man stole a bicycle from a guy who then drove his van against traffic on 50th Street, hit him & a bystander at 9th Ave. pic.twitter.com/czquKVn4z9
