Police say they’re searching for a man brandishing a knife who stole a 15-year-old’s bike in the east end Monday morning.

It happened around 11:30 a.m. close to Main Street East and Ottawa Street, police say. A 15-year-old teen was in a parking lot with a friend when a man they didn’t know approached them and pulled out a knife.

He held the knife up and said, “get off the bike,” police say. The teen got off and handed it over. The man then rode off on the bike – first going south across Main and then west.

The investigation is ongoing.
