Incident Description: 
The theft happened between 12:45pm on the 19th when I locked my bike, and I finished my ER shift at 1:30 am on the 20th when I noticed my bike was stolen. The thief/thieves cut other cables at the Lurie Children's Hospital designated employee bike rack. It is a two tier rack system with individual heavy duty cables to attach your locks too. It's just off the sidewalk between Lurie's and Northwestern hospitals on St Clair between Superior and Huron. I noticed other locks/cables had been cut as well, but they took my locks with the bike. I had a U lock attached to the rack between the rear tire and frame and a cable lock between the front tire and frame. I didn't have an updated picture of the bike, but the picture I pulled off the internet is almost identical.
