Police Officer goes above and beyond to help elderly burglary victim

March 25, 2013

An Arlington, Virginia Police Officer went above and beyond the call of duty when he arrived at an elderly man's home who had just been burglarized.

The victim, in his 80's, was very upset about the home violation. Officer Brandon Evans was there to comfort the man, even helping vacuum up the broken window glass.

Before the Officers left, Evans noticed the man trying to saw a piece of plywood to cover the open window. Evans stepped in to help, cutting the plywood and boarding up the open window.

"When I asked Officer Evans what he was thinking, he said he could only think about his father and how he needed to do everything he could to bring dignity and respect back to this elderly man," said Police spokesman Sgt. Christopher Cook.

The Arlington Police Department posted the photo to their Facebook page, drawing in over 4,000 likes in just one day. A small act of kindness goes a long way.
