Toledo police are asking for help in identifying two men who were possibly involved in stealing a motorcycle from a downtown parking garage.

Police said a 2004 gold and black Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Ultra Classic was taken from a garage in the 1000 block of Madison Avenue on Sept. 28.

Thomas Steele, who owns the motorcycle, told police he parked the bike on the first floor of the garage at 7:15 a.m. as he arrived for work.

Surveillance footage shows that, at 2:57 p.m. two men walked along 11th Street from Madison.

At 2:58 p.m., they went into the parking garage together, one walking up to where the motorcycle was parked, and a couple of minutes later, one of the men drove the motorcycle out of the garage, turning right onto 11th and left onto Madison. Police say both men are black.

Mr. Steele noticed his motorcycle was missing at 5 p.m. when he was leaving work.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 419-255-1111.
