Incident Description

Sidewalk in front of an open business.

10 minutes
Incident Description: 
Based on surveillance footage, about 9:35am, I locked the bike using a U-lock to the frame, front wheel and the bike rack. Around 9:40 a middle-aged man walked slowly past all the bikes and then a couple minutes later went back to the bike and lit a cigarette and waited for several minutes. He took out some tool and cut through the lock. There was one person who paused and approached him but at that point he had already cut through the lock and seemed to ignore that man and rode away.
