LOS ANGELES - While Halloween is a popular holiday among American adults, you could argue that it is really all about children.

Authorities in California say they are on the lookout for a man accused of stealing from a child on Halloween.

The 11-year-old victim won a bicycle during a raffle at a Halloween celebration, but didn't get to enjoy his prize.

Officers say a man "forcefully pulled the bicycle" from the boy's grasp.

At that point, witnesses say the alleged suspect put a small child on the handlebars and rode away.

The 11-year-old and his mother tried to catch up to the suspect, but could not keep up.
