Police in West Haven are charging a man with stealing a child’s purple bicycle.

They say a witness saw 20-year-old Maurice Bacote take the bike from in front of a Sam’s Food Mart on Campbell Avenue.

The witness followed the suspect and was able to retrieve the bike, but not before Bacote allegedly threw it at the witness, who sustained a hand injury.

A police officer was flagged down and gave chase, finally capturing Bacote outside his Elm Street address.

He’s facing charges of larceny, breach of peace, assault, and interfering with an officer and is being held on bond.
