Cops Give New Bike to 18-Year-Old With Special Needs After He's Bullied
He was bullied for riding his sister's bike.
It all started when First District Officers Ross and Raddell responded to a call about an endangered adult in Cleveland, but by the time they arrived, 18-year-old Elvis had returned home.
His mother, however, disclosed to police that the teen, who they described as “affectionate,” is often bullied because he rides his sister’s bike, which is pink.
Once they learned of Elvis' torment at the hands of bullies, the officers decided to buy a bike for the teen in his favorite color, red. They contacted the Cleveland Police Foundation to help out with the gift.
“CPF and Cops for Kids bought Elvis a bike and new basketball and the officers pitched in to buy him a CPD hat and a special blue helmet with flashing lights!” the Cleveland Police Department posted on Facebook.
“Elvis couldn’t believe he had his own bike and rode it proudly down the block!!”
