Good deeds sometimes go unnoticed but when a Maryland police officer used his own money to keep a homeless mother and baby off the street – people certainly took note.
An unidentified woman, with her one-year-old daughter in tow, arrived at a Hyattsville police station Wednesday asking for help. She explained that she had recently escaped an abusive home. She was homeless and staying in a shelter and felt she had run out of options.
Corporal Che Atkinson claims to have spent the morning contacting a social worker for assistance and even reached out to a distant relative. But when he arrived for his shift the next day, there was the woman again, sitting in the same spot he’d left her.
“I was like did she come back this morning?” he explained to WUSA9. “And the other officer says ‘no I think she’s been here all night.’”
That’s when Atkinson learned the woman and child hadn’t eaten in days and chose to go above and beyond the call of duty at his personal expense.
