SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A Sherman Heights woman is pleading to get her bicycle back after it was stolen from her driveway in broad daylight. 

Stellar McSherry and her husband Josh say their security camera caught the brazen theft on camera Tuesday morning at about 11 a.m. They say the bike was strapped onto Josh's car when a man walked up, burned through the ropes and straps with a lighter and rode off on the bike. Stellar says she built the blue and silver road bike in 2003 while in college. 

The suspect is described as African-American and 5 feet 6 inches with a medium build.

Anyone with information is asked to call police.
