The incident happened a few days ago, when NYPD Officer Sara Morici of the 103rd precinct, responded to call for a stolen e-bike.
When she arrived, she was met by a distraught teenager, who had just bought the bike.
The teen was living in a group home and had saved up enough money to buy the e-bike to start working for Uber Eats.
Officer Morici says she couldn’t stop thinking about the story.
So, she led a charge to raise enough money to buy him a new bike.
Officer Morici says she didn’t do it for a pat on the back, but because she felt a calling.
