Bob “The Bike Man” has been the victim of vandalism. Someone smashed the windows of the truck he uses to deliver bikes to deserving school children in Greater Springfield and Connecticut.
Ryan Walsh told 22News 26-year-old Waldemar Rivera was arrested and charged in connection with the break-in, as well as multiple other reported break-ins in the area Wednesday night.
Charland said he’s stuck with a $1,000 deductable. Until he raises the funds, his bike delivery truck will be out of service. He hopes to have it fixed before his next scheduled delivery two months from now.
A GoFundMe page has been created to help raise funds for Bob to fix his truck.
