Florida cop surprises homeless man with lunch [View all]


Officer Acosta tells 7News that he went to grab lunch for two people and then came back to eat hot dogs with Robert. The officer sat down and had a 20 minute conversation with the man and spoke about each other’s life and how he became homeless.

Robert told the officer that he was battling cancer and has had several surgeries on his leg. After that, Robert lost his home and has not been successful in finding another job and getting back into society.

Officer Acosta said he enjoys helping others and likes to chat with others about issues as it helps bridge the gap between the police and homeless community.
