Man robbed of bike at gunpoint in Central Square

Cambridge Police report a man was robbed of his bike around 3 a.m. outside 359 Green St. in Central Square.

Police say the man was approached by two men who grabbed his expensive yellow Cannondale bike.

One suspect, who took out the gun, is described as White, in his 30s, 5'6" or 5'7" with dirty blond hair and wearing a gray hoodie, jeans and a bandana or gaiter-style face masks. The other suspect is described as Black, in his early to mid-30s, with a mustache and chin hair, thin and wearing a dark hoodie.

Police say they have stepped up patrols in the Central Square area.

I haven't heard of this happening since the mid-80s.

Yikes.

I use two u-locks to secure my ride now. Bikes are getting pretty spendy/hard to find.

i use 3. I bought one of those heavy covered chains but it actually takes less time to use the u locks.
