Police are hunting a 6ft shoplifter who snatched some meat before making his getaway – on a girl’s pink bike.
The Leeds outer west neighbourhood policing team are investigating following the incident at the Co-op on Swinnow Road in Bramley on Thursday morning.
Detailing recent “crimes of note”, the team’s Facebook page said: “Theft of meat yesterday morning by an adult male suspect who fled on, of all things, a SMALL PINK and WHITE GIRL’S BIKE.... no we are not kidding.”
The thief cycled off towards the Wellstones area. He was in his mid-30s with short, cropped brown hair and was wearing a grey Adidas top, black trousers and black trainers.
Police said they have obtained CCTV footage but want to hear from anyone with information on 101.
