Incident Description: 
My bike was locked up to a bike rack outside of Namaskar Yoga at 3946 N Southport Ave, Chicago, IL 60613 starting at 11:00am. I taught a yoga class and after class, around 12:30pm, I went to get my bike and it was gone. At one point during class, I saw a larger group of people hanging out outside the studio, which isn't typical for that area. There is walking traffic on the sidewalk, but big groups don't typically hang out there. I'm wondering if that's when the bike was stolen and I'm sharing this in case it's been reported in other incidents. Although the bike lock was missing too, there was a tiny part of the lock left behind. It looks like it was a very clean cut through the u-lock, assuming some type of professional tool was used.
