Police Capt. Jim Pittenger said the 43-year-old Rochester man said he was riding on a bike trail in Slatterly Park about 6:40 p.m. Wednesday when two men told him to stop. He did and said one man pushed him off the bike and another grabbed his shirt, demanded money and threatened to beat him up. He gave the man his cash. The two then fled, taking the bike.
