KALAMAZOO, Mich. (WOOD) — A Kalamazoo Public Safety officer went out of his way to help a young boy who had his bike stolen.

Officer Maynard recently met 11-year-old Percy after the boy reported that his bike had been stolen.

The officer spent the rest of his shift looking for the bike but never found it, so he decided to buy Percy a new bike.

Officer Maynard surprised Percy with the new bike at his home on Monday.

Pictures of the surprise delivery posted on Downtown Kalamazoo Cops’ Facebook page show a very happy 11-year-old boy.
