A Washingtonville mother is asking for the public’s help after her son’s bicycle was stolen from their back porch. 
Helena Diaz says her 13-year-old son’s $700 “SoCal Flyer” bike was taken in August from their home on East Main Street. 
She says police told her there’s been a spike in neighborhood bicycle thefts in recent weeks. 
She hopes someone will recognize the bike and return it. 
“He is missing his bike. This was his toy that he loved to work on," said Diaz. "He loved to ride his bike around and help people. He helped me get things from the store. He’s devastated and heartbroken.” 
Diaz says the specialty trick bike was a Christmas and birthday gift last year and that her son hoped to compete with it. 
Anyone with information is asked to call Washingtonville police at 845-496-9123.
