The Bicycle Thief: It’s Not Who You Think

When Ms. Wang, a soft-spoken 28-year-old with wispy black hair,
emerged from the station at 8 p.m., she saw that her black Diamondback
bicycle had vanished. “I thought it was stolen,” she said. “A guy standing there heard me
make a phone call to my friend to say that my bike was gone, and he
said the police had come by and clipped it.”
