    When a 15-year-old boy’s bike was stolen, an East Windsor Police officer donated his own bike so the boy would have a way to get around.

    East Windsor police shared the story on their Facebook page after the teen’s mom reached out to thank Officer Zachary Sherman.

    The teen has been working over the summer to save money to buy a car when he gets his license. A couple of weeks ago, he and some friends went to a gas station on Route 5 and someone stole the bike from the front of the store.

    “Officer Sherman was great to work with because he understood how upset we were to know that someone so uncaring of others could take a bike from a 15 year old kid," the thank you letter says.
