Yesterday afternoon, police in Rome issued an appeal for the public to provide reports on a stolen bicycle.

The bicycle belongs to Antonio Ricci, who filed the report of theft with his son Bruno. Ricci reported that his bicycle had been snatched by an Italian young man with a cap who disappeared afterwards.

The one-meter-tall bicycle is a black Fides with a lamp on the front. It was last seen in a street with numerous film posters in central Rome. Around noon yesterday, the bicycle was left unlocked while Ricci was working on a ladder.

Ricci stated that his wife’s dowry bedlinens were sold to recover the pawned bicycle. After two years of unemployment, he was offered the job of putting up film posters under the condition of providing his own bicycle. The theft took place on his first day at work, and now he may face unemployment again due to the weakness of the Italian economy.

The police are appealing for the public to report on the whereabouts of the bicycle. The hotline is 853 2852 2585. All reports will be filed confidentially.
