A Toronto police has been so touched by the story of a thief arrested for stealing clothes he chose to buy them and give them to him.

When Jeyanesan arrived, a loss prevention officer at the store had apprehended an 18-year-old man for stealing a dress shirt, tie and socks.

"This young man has faced many hardships in life, and he tried to get out of it to help his family and find a job", said Niran Jeyanesan to CP24.

Not only did he release the man from custody without charge, but he purchased the items of clothing for him.

"This individual didn't have any resources".

The officers later learned that the man needed the outfit for an upcoming job interview and didn't have the money to buy it. That was in his mind. I think he really wanted to attend that interview'.

Although this cop's compassion may come as a breath of fresh air to all of us who have become accustomed to police beatings and shootings, Jayanesan asserted that what he did is standard behavior, but often goes unnoticed.

'Police officers do this every day and they don't get recognised for it. "We are not looking for recognition", he said.

'A core part of policing is helping people and I think we do that every day'.

Staff Sgt. Paul Bois spoke out to praise his officer's generous decision.

'I think the officer did a fantastic job. He exercised his discretion, definitely showed some humanity in dealing with this particular individual. He wanted this job.
