SPRINGFIELD, Mo. Another neighborhood theft caught on camera.

A child's bike was stolen right out of someone's fenced back yard in north west Springfield.

Tyler Allen said a man he doesn't know went into his backyard Saturday morning and took off with one of his son's bikes.

He believes the thief may have known where his security cameras were because he only appeared on one.

"They can't go on a bike ride now. They are not hurting me, I am not using a bike, they are hurting my kids. They just don't realize who they are hurting when they take this stuff. Who knows what else he's out there stealing and now he has transportation. He's mobile," said Allen.

If you know anything or recognize the man in the video please call Springfield police.
