66-year old bicycle stolen from 83-year old

1943 Huffy bicycle taken outside nursing home

An 83-year-old woman's 66-year-old bicycle was stolen in Lewiston, Maine recently.

According to a recent Associated Press report, Lewiston resident Ruth Slovenski's 1943 blue Huffy bicycle -- a gift she received as a teenager -- was stolen from outside the Maison Marcotte nursing home she was visiting last Saturday afternoon.

Miss Slovenski told police she left her bicycle unlocked near a mailbox between 2:45 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. The blue bicycle had mudguards and a front metal basket.

A nursing home security video shows a man wearing a hat and dark clothing riding off on the bike.

As yet, there is no word from the Lewiston police about the recovery of Miss Slovenski's treasured bicycle.
