Officer Matt Siltala responded to a call to check on the welfare of an elderly resident.

After seeing she was in good health, he asked her why her yard was so overgrown.

"She said she doesn't have anyone to mow for her," the Orono Police Department wrote on Facebook. "He grabbed her mower and cut the front yard."

The department said in an update that many people have since inquired about helping the woman with her lawn.
