White Plains Mother, Daughter Confront Motorcycle Thief

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. — A White Plains woman and her mother confronted a man who was taking her neighbor's Honda motorcycle, causing the thief to drop the bike and run, according to a police report.

Isiah Styles, a 33-year-old from White Plains, was later arrested and charged with third-degree attempted grand larceny, a Class E felony, and criminal mischief, a Class A misdemeanor, in the April 29 incident.

The witness told police she knows the owner of the motorcycle, who lives below her in the multifamily home on Lafayette Street. According to the report, she watched from a window as a man wearing dark clothing dragged a red motorcycle from the back of the house to the front yard.

She went outside to confront the suspect with her mother, who yelled at him for taking the motorcycle and asked what he was doing, police said. The suspect dropped the motorcycle and ran down the street and onto Fisher Avenue. The left metal handle bar broke, causing $300 in damage, according to the police report.

Police later caught up with a man who fit the description the witness provided. She confirmed it was the same man, police said.

Styles was arrested and taken to headquarters, where he was held for court.
