Keith Kirk, 30, appeared in Broward County circuit court Thursday on charges he stole a $600 bicycle from outside of a Fort Lauderdale convenience store, but not before the bike’s owner exacted some payback.
Kirk’s injuries were inflicted after Lauderhill resident Calvin McDougal pursued the fleeing man on his bike, according to the Fort Lauderdale police’s incident report.
“You allegedly steal someone’s bike and, uh, it looks like there was some street justice carried out,” remarked circuit court Judge John “Jay” Hurley at Kirk’s bond hearing in a CBS Miami report.
Police arrived to the sight of Kirk’s bloodied face. He was brought to Broward Health Medical Center for injuries, which included two swollen black eyes and a facial laceration that required stitches.
At the hospital, Kirk confessed the theft to Broward County Sheriff’s detectives.
McDougal, the owner of the bicycle, will not face any charges. Kirk is being held in the Broward County jail on one count of grand larceny.
