(SOUTH FLORIDA SUN-SENTINEL) A 30-year-old man was tackled and received blows to the face, but he’s no crime victim, Fort Lauderdale police say.

Keith Kirk appeared in court Thursday with blackened, swollen eyes and stitches between the brows. He is accused of stealing a bicycle about noon Wednesday outside the One Stop Food Mart at 18 NW First Ave. in Fort Lauderdale.

The beatdown was delivered by the bike’s owner, Calvin McDougal of Lauderhill, according to a police report. The two men got into a fight when McDougal chased after Kirk to retrieve his $600 bicycle.
