Cape Coral, FL – Police in Cape Coral responded to a call from an elderly man who got his bicycle stolen in front of a supermarket. The bicycle was the only mode of transportation for this old man. Instead of looking for the theft, these officers did something that left everyone in the neighborhood speechless.
The officers explained how the old man was sad about his bicycle so they decided to buy him a new one. Officers Ken and Guang went beyond their police duty and bought a “brand new” bike for a man identified only as Robert, who had reported his bike stolen.
The officers didn’t want Robert, said to be in his 80s, to lose his only mode of transportation, so they went to a local supermarket and bought him a replacement.
“Is this a new one, here?” Robert asks the officers before testing out the bike.
The officers are seen helping Robert adjust the seat, showing him the bike’s features and giving him a new lock with a key to ensure his new ride isn’t stolen.
As the officers were leaving, a man who saw the exchange then tells them: “You guys are the greatest in the world. I’m almost crying. God bless you.”
