For anyone who’s ever found themselves losing their way in life, it can sometimes feel like a second chance is nearly impossible to come by. But recently, one Toronto police officer was able to give a second chance to a man who needed it more than anything.

Constable Niran Jeyanesan of the 31 Division in Toronto was recently called to a Walmart to respond to a reported shoplifting attempt. When the constable and his partner arrived at the store, they saw before them an 18-year-old teenage man who had been apprehended by store security for trying to steal a dress shirt, tie, and socks.

Just A Young Man Trying To Provide For His Family

During the course of questioning the young man, the Toronto officer discovered that the motive for this attempted theft was not at all what he might have suspected. It turns out that the teenager was getting ready for a job interview, which is why he needed the dress clothes.

According to Jeyanesan, “This young person has been facing his own difficulties in life and he was looking to straighten out all that by providing for his family and trying to get a job.”

Clearly feeling a level of sympathy for the teen’s situation, the officers decided to release him without charge. However, what Jeyanesan did at that point might surprise you.

A Good Samaritan

In addition to sparing the young man from any potential criminal record, which would certainly hinder his future job prospects, Jeyanesan saw an opportunity to further help the man.

“This individual didn’t have any resources,” Jeyanesan said. Because of this, the officer ended up purchasing the shirt and tie and giving the clothing to the man to use for his interview.

Jeyanesan’s own motive is simple enough. He wanted to show all the good that cops do in their communities.

“Police officers do this every day and they don’t get recognized for it,” he said. “We don’t look for any recognition. A core part of policing is helping people and I think we do that every day.”
