Keith Kirk beaten badly. 30-year-old, Keith Kirk, a homeless man, took an expensive bicycle from outside a One Stop Food Mart in Fort Lauderdale, Florida then was tackled and received blows to the face.
According to the police report the beat down was delivered by the bike’s owner, Calvin McDougal of Lauderhill, according to a police report. McDougal chased down Kirk and beat him, after he discovered him riding off with his $600 bike.
Keith Kirk appeared in court Thursday with blackened, swollen eyes and stitches between the brows.
As reported by the Sun Sentinel, Broward County Judge John ‘Jay’ Hurley told him: “I believe there was a little bit more than just a tackle,” Broward County Judge John “Jay” Hurley said Thursday during Kirk’s hearing in first appearance court. “Now, sir, you allegedly steal someone’s bike and it looks like there was some street justice carried out.”
“Mr. McDougal was a victim making a citizen’s arrest and was not arrested,” said Detective DeAnna Garcia in an email.
