A homeless man was stunned by a policeman's kindness after the officer took off his shoes and gave them to the man as a gift.
The police officer saw the homeless man trip on worn out rubber soles of his shoes as he was walking down the street.
Upon approaching the man, the police officer struck up a conversation and inquired about his circumstances.
The officer asked the man if he wanted a bag of toiletries and supplies courtesy of a community assistance program offered by the police department, but the man declined.
The officer then asked what the man's shoe size was - and as fate would have it, his feet were the same size as the police officer.
Without hesitating the police officer took off his own shoes and gave them to the homeless man.
After the police officer made sure that his new acquaintance did not require any additional form of assistance, the man happily strolled away with a new pair of sturdy shoes on his feet.
