How long was the bike locked in this location?:
The bike sat at farthest point in bushes in U-shaped courtyard in front of building's access door.
I got home around 4pm on Tuesday, 11/15/2016. I left my bike out, unlocked, in front of the apartment building's 1525 W. Farwell Ave. entrance, located at the back right of the courtyard of the building. I left the bike next to the door, nestled in the tall bushes temporarily. It was supposed to be temporary because I was expecting to leave shortly after getting home, but after getting home, I realized I didn't actually have to leave. I forgot I left the bike out in front of the building's exit/entrance, and relaxed at home for the duration for the evening. The bike would be literally sitting below my apartment window, one floor down to the ground floor, next to the entrance. This morning, (11/16), I went to look for it, and it was gone. My partner got home around Tuesday night at 7pm, entering through the front of the building, and she did not notice any bike sitting next to the front door, leading me to believe that it was stolen after I got home and before she got home last night (4pm-7pm on 11/15). The only way anyone could see that far, at night, in the building's courtyard, is if a tenant was either coming or going from that particular entrance to the building. The front gate is frequently open which leads to the possibility of a stranger possibly entering the courtyard. The picture provided is not my bike, but is identical to model and color, minus my distinctive features.
