Glendora, Ca September 2, 2015 Patrol Officer Danny Antillon receives a complaint from several people of a woman sitting on a bench that is disoriented and to check her welfare. Upon arriving he sees a woman sitting on the bench who is in distress and without shoes. She is complaining that she has been a victim, someone stole her shoes and she had no money. Her feet hurt from walking and she was disabled. Antillon has been down this road before.
He quickly went to a local store and purchased the woman a pair of sneakers that would fit her, gave her a jacket, a bottle of water and then gave her a bus pass. He paid for everything out of his own pocket with the exception of the bus pass which had been donated to the Police Department for just such an occasion.
Then Antillon made sure that she was safe to get on her way. One of his supervisors named Lt. Matt Egan who found out about the incident told the San Gabriel Valley Tribune “I know he’s helped out people in need”.
According to Tricia Ayers, a spokeswoman for the Glendora Police Department, Officer Danny Antillon didn’t know the other officer who responded to the call took photos. The second officer also let the department know what happened as well. The photos were posted to the Departments facebook page where the community posted comments that were complementary of the officer and Department in general.
