Man steals bike, gets road rash

A Stillwater man was cited for theft of a bicycle early Thursday morning.
Stillwater police reports said officers responded to a call of an injured person at Fourth and Myrtle streets. When officers arrived, the man was lying on the ground with injuries to his face, knees and hands with his legs wrapped around the bike.
The report said the victim was intoxicated and unable to tell officers what had happened and didn’t realize he was lying in the street. The man eventually was able to tell officers that he was heading home from downtown and admitted to stealing the bike. He tried to retract his statement about the bike, then agreed he had taken the bike from downtown.
