Jersey City boy charged with possessing stolen bicycle
Asking how such a thing could happen in Bayonne, the grandmother of a 9-year-old Bayonne boy told police that a boy completely dressed in black grabbed her grandson’s bicycle right in front of them and fled at about 3 p.m. on Aug. 13.
The grandmother and her grandson were seated near the fountain near Stephen Greg County Park by Kennedy Boulevard when a male teen dressed all in black snatched up the bicycle from the path in front of them and fled.
She told police that a second boy wearing a white shirt rode passed on another bicycle and seemed to be in the company of the first boy.
Putting the call out on the radio, the police stopped a boy wearing a white shirt on Avenue C, who was then riding the stolen bicycle.
Since he was not the teen who actually stole the bicycle, the 15-year-old Jersey City boy with the white shirt was charged only with receiving stolen property. The thief was not found.
