Police in Burbank asked for the public’s help Wednesday to identify a man they say stole a bike from a teenager with special needs, along with other items.

The theft occurred Saturday in a garage of an apartment complex in the 4500 block of Clybourn Avenue, according to a statement from the Burbank Police Department.

The man snatched a gray-and-black three-wheel bike specially designed for a person with special needs, police said. The bike is worth about $5,300.

The man also took a sewing machine from a pickup, police said.


The suspect was described as being white or Latino, in his mid-30s and wearing a black hooded jacket with a black-and-white knitted hat and dark jeans. Surveillance cameras captured images of the suspect, which police released to the public.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Burbank Police Det. Aaron Kay at (818) 238-3210.
