Willoughby police officer helps man in need

A simple act of kindness went a long way

WILLOUGHBY, Ohio — A Willoughby police officer is getting attention for all of the right reasons.

A citizen posted on the department's Facebook page about an act of generosity she witnessed. 

She saw the officer buy a man a sandwich, a drink, and put gas in his car at Speedway last weekend.

On Friday, we spoke with that police officer. 

Mike Sevel told us officers are in a unique position to help people and when he saw a man in need, he just wanted to give him a hand.
