Good Samaritan Replaces Boy’s Stolen Bike

Posted: Updated:

Orlando, Fla.-A stranger became a young boy's hero after the man decided to buy a brand new bike for the boy after his was stolen.

Neal was buying a bicycle for his son's birthday, and bought CJ’s replacement bike at the same time.

“It made me feel depressed and devastated and stuff because I was just turning double digits,” said CJ Brooks.

CJ is talking about turning 10years old and realizing his birthday bike had been stolen the day after Memorial Day.

"Someone stole my bike, and we put a sign out like this one someone was so nice out there that they drove by, and said here this is for you,” said CJ.

That Good Samaritan was Neal Salina who was out looking for a place to rent. He thought the sign in front of CJ's house was listing a place for rent.

"It's not a “For Rent” sign, but I read it anyway. And I seen it was a little kid, someone stole his bicycle, my daddy instinct kicked in immediately you know," he said.

He gave it a little thought and realized he couldn't leave the neighborhood without doing something.

"We rode around for a little while, and thinking what to do. And we came up with the idea we had a couple dollars after and we could get it," said Neal.

CJ’s mom Jolynn is still moved by the perfect beautiful stranger with a perfect beautiful heart.

“I was just blown away, completely blown away. I'm still shocked that there's still strangers or people out there with actual good hearts, that still care about what's right," she said.

"It's good once and awhile to do a good deed. The moral of the story is to help someone if you could," said Neal.

Neal doesn't want anything in return; he just hopes his gesture inspires CJ and the rest of the world to follow his lead.

"Just pass on this good word, keep doing the right thing," he said.
