PROVIDENCE, R.I., — “I was thinking to myself, did that really just happen?” were the first words of Rhode Island College junior Kai Schutte when detailing an attempted motorcycle theft. “The old guy was just sitting there on the ground after he got sucker punched by the other guy. The dude robbing him was about to get away on the motorbike when the old guy threw him off.” Such crimes have unfortunately become a more common occurrence throughout Providence, especially to do with motor vehicles. To those who witnessed this crime along with Mr. Schutte, it sure did not help create the conception of a safe city as this occurred within view of the State House.
