As the country strives to heal following a week of turbulent civil unrest, police officers and employees from a popular retail store in Monterey County banded together to lend some help to a man in need.
On Thursday, a Marina resident told police that his bike - his primary mode of transportation to and from work - had been stolen, police said in a Facebook post.
Distraught by the news, police officers rounded up some spare change to purchase the man a new set of wheels. The law enforcement officials ventured to a local Target store and store employees eventually caught wind of the ordeal. Target jumped on board and continued to build upon the random act of kindness, police said.
The retail store donated a new bike to the man and the money raised by the police officers was used to purchase a new lock, helmet, light and tire pump for the young man, police said.
