Half Moon Bay High School student Michael Minasi was gifted a bicycle from the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office Activities League last Friday. Kyle Ludowitz / Review

When 15-year-old Michael Minasi’s bicycle was stolen in October near a local skate park, he didn’t report it to law enforcement. A couple of days later, Minasi saw his bicycle being ridden by the person who reportedly took it from him.

After a confrontation, Minasi decided to allow the other kid to keep it, saying “he probably needed it more than me.”
