In each case, the suspect approaches the victim on a bicycle, takes something from them such as jewelry or a purse, and flees the location on the bicycle.

The first incident happened at 3:30 in the afternoon in front of 63-74 Austin Street. He approached a 14-year-old boy from behind and removed a chain from his neck.

On August 2, he committed the same crime at 4:45 in the afternoon at 66th Road and 108th Street. A 15-year-old was the victim in this case.

Ten days later, he took a 21-year-old woman's purse at 62nd Drive and Junction Boulevard.

On August 22, a 13-year-old boy had a chain taken from his neck in front of 102-35 64th Road.

The most recent incident happened last Saturday at 99th Street and 62nd Drive. Again, the suspect approached a 13-year-old boy from behind and took a chain.

The bandit was riding a red bicycle in the first four incidents. He was riding a silver BMX bicycle with rear pegs in the last incident.
