It’s not quite the Italian neorealist drama “The Bicycle Thief” (1948), but the NYPD is looking for a woman who allegedly stole a bike in Sunnyside last month.

On Thursday, Dec. 19, around 8:30 p.m., an unidentified woman took a bicycle from a residential building around 50th Street and 39th Avenue, according to authorities. The bike, which belonged to a 42-year-old man, is reportedly worth about $700, cops say.
