Denver police help elderly woman who had bike stolen

DENVER — Four Denver police officers were honored for going above and beyond to help a senior citizen whose property was stolen.

According to the Denver Police Department, a woman reported that her bicycle had been stolen.

The woman apparently had asked a friend to watch her bike, but while he was watching it, the suspect took it from him.

Police said the bicycle is the only form of transportation for the woman, so it was important to get it back.

Sgt. Joey Rodarte and Sgt. Rany Chastain responded to the call, and found the suspect and the bicycle.

The woman’s bike was returned, however, when the suspect stole it, he lost the helmet and water bottle, police said.

Officer Jason Meier and officer Sean Cronin wanted to make sure she had everything she needed, so they took the woman to Mojo Wheels to pick up a new helmet, and paid for her belongings.
