WEST HAVEN – Police have charged a 20-year-old man with stealing a child’s purple bike.

Police said a witness told them he saw Maurice Bacote, of Elm Street, take the bike from outside Sam’s Food Mart on Campbell Avenue. The witness followed Bacote, police said, and got it back after Bacote threw it at him and injured him.

The witness then alerted Officer Jordan Zwickler, who was patrolling the area. Zwickler ordered Bacote to stop, but Bacote ran. He didn’t outrun Zwickler, though.

Bacote was charged with larceny, breach of peace, assault and interfering with police.
