---- — MANCHESTER — Police responded to a report that a bicycle had been stolen at 11:47 a.m. Wednesday in the area of Forest Street.

But police soon gathered a description of the alleged young thief, recovered the bike, and returned it to its rightful owner.

Police said a Walker Road resident became concerned when someone did not return home on time Wednesday at 7:50 p.m. Police said, however, that while they were taking the report, the purported missing person returned home.

A duck was struck and killed by a car on Pine Street around 4 p.m., according to police. The Department of Public Works cleared the bird from the scene.
