It was his eighth birthday, and no one picked him up from school.
The boy sat in a school office, waiting for one of his family members to show up, when Officer Darryl Robinson arrived. The school called the Green Bay Police Department in Wisconsin after failing to reach an emergency contact.
When Robinson walked in the door, he immediately recognized the boy — he’s had some history with the family. The boy’s parent is incarcerated, Captain Keith Knoebel explained to CBS News, though he wouldn’t elaborate.
“It seemed like he was in good spirits. He was playing around,” Robinson said at a press conference on Wednesday. “He was excited. It was his birthday.”
