Teen robbed of electric bicycle on Fay Avenue Bike Path

A teenage boy was robbed of a new electric bicycle on the Fay Avenue Bike Path last month, and the thieves may have been other teens.

According to a post on social media, the boy was sitting on the new bike the afternoon of Feb. 25 when he was shoved to the ground and a thief took off with the bike. The post said there were multiple assailants and that they were believed to be high school students.

The “main suspect” was described as a young male “believed to be of high school age … wearing a higher-end full motorcycle helmet, moto goggles, gloves and all black clothing with Vans shoes.”

San Diego police spokesman Adam Sharki said the department’s Northern Division is investigating but that he could not provide other details.

Coronavirus by the numbers

The San Diego County Health & Human Services Agency posts an updated list of coronavirus cases by ZIP code, including rates per 100,000 residents. Through March 1, ZIP code 92037 (estimated population 43,400) had a total of 5,269 registered cases (up by 70 from the previous count) and 12,172.8 per 100,000. ZIP code is the code of residence, which may not be the location of exposure.

The county also posts a list by ZIP code of the number of residents who have received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine. Through March 1, 41,343 residents of the 92037 ZIP code had received a vaccine.
