HOUSTON (AP) — An off-duty Houston police officer has paid to replace groceries stolen from an ill man after he collapsed in a parking lot just after buying the items.
Officer Kirsten Koryciak (KOR’-see-ak), in a police Facebook posting, said Wednesday she has relatives with diabetes and she cares about the community.
The man is diabetic, had a medical episode and collapsed Tuesday outside a Walmart. Koryciak was working store security when she noticed the man, who earlier bought groceries, walk back inside with a bandaged arm.
She asked what happened and the still-groggy man said he had a diabetic episode and collapsed. He said emergency personnel were summoned and while he was being treated — someone stole his groceries, about $20 to $30 worth of items.
