As officers approached the area, they observed a subject, described as a male in his 20s wearing dark clothes and gloves, who matched the description, walking through an alley.

Officers drove through the alley in attempts to make contact with the suspect, later described as Tyler Mobley, 25, of Santa Monica, when he crouched behind a SUV in an attempt not to be seen.

Officers exited their vehicle and approached Mobley. While officers spokewith Mobley, he stated that he was not hiding but rather just trying to find a place to urinate.

Officers noticed that he was in possession of a bike, and when Mobley was asked if it belonged to him, he stated that he needed transportation and had taken it without permission. Mobley agreed to direct officers to the location in which he had taken the bike from.

He was booked for possession of stolen property. His bail was set at $8,500.
