Phoenix Police Sgt. Natalie Simonick, 46, was on patrol around eleven at night, when she spotted a young man who was walking in a desolate area.
According to ABC, Simonick thought the young man may have been violating curfew on March 6.
Simonick said that the young man, Christian Felix,18, showed her his ID, proving he was 18. He said that he was walking home from work because he missed the bus, so Simonick offered to give him a courtesy ride home.
According to AZ Central, the two talked a bit and Simonick was impressed with Felix's work ethic and his positive attitude. Smonick eventually asked him why he didn't just ride a bike to work to make things easier for himself.
Felix explained to her that he did not own a bike, and he never learned how to ride a bike.
According to AZ Family, Simonick then decided to buy a bike for Felix, as well as safety lights, a bike lock and a helmet.
Simonick and three officers also met up with Felix to teach him about the basics of bike safety.
Felix's mother said that she was moved by Simonick's generosity and that she was an angel for looking after him.
