The spray painted bike

One day I was going out for a bike ride with my mum.  We stopped outside the shops and we went down the alley way. My mum’s bike got stolen while we were in the food shop.  We followed him and saw as he spray painted the bike and tied it to a tree.  Then he ran away. We thought this was really odd! Luckily, mum knew his face. Later that day,we went round to his house.  My mum said,  ‘Have you been steeling bikes again.’  He said, ‘He had been in all day.’ We said that we saw his face so then he told us he steals stuff and sprays it yellow as it is his favourite colour.
