Menomonee Falls Police are searching for a man who stole a bike out of an open garage.

The incident happened at an apartment complex in the 14300 block of Fond du Lac Avenue Monday evening.

The man entered the open garage wearing what appeared to be black latex gloves, took the bike and as he was leaving, the victim and a witness began chasing him down. At that point, the suspect fled across the street to Rotary Park and placed the bike into the bed of an older green Chevrolet pickup truck. He then drove south on Lilly Road.

Police describe the suspect as a white male, 35-45-years-old with a brown and gray mustache and beard. He was wearing a green hat, white tank top, dark sweatpants and dark tennis shoes at the time of the crime.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Menomonee Falls Police Officer Holsbo at 262-53-8700. To make an anonymous tip, contact the Waukesha County Crime Stoppers at 1-888-441-5505, or through their website.
