Man steals boy's bike after pushing off rider

A 12-year-old boy was robbed of his bicycle Tuesday as he rode near the Brooklyn Park library, county police said.

The boy told police he was riding on Brookwood Road when he was approached by a man in his 20s. The man pushed the boy off his bicycle, then put the bike in the trunk of an Oldsmobile and drove off, police said.

Police searched unsuccessfully for the car. The 20-inch black-and-chrome boy's bicycle was valued at $350.
