A Gift from New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office

Tuesday, March 8th, 2022

Last weekend, New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office gifted a brand-new bicycle to a 9-year-old girl. Officers first met this brave young girl when she was the victim of a hostage situation.  She was taken from her home at knifepoint in Wilmington.  The Emergency Response Team was able to negotiate with the suspect and rescue the child.  Then, only a few months later, the sheriff’s office responded to another call at her address, but this time, the family’s shed was broken into. Among the items stolen was the young girl’s bicycle.

About 10 members of the New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office donated to buy her a new bike which they were able to give to her over the weekend. They described her as very brave and so strong.  Further, they commented that, as parents, they were honored to be able to help, and admitted that it was heartbreaking to know that her bike was stolen.  Especially knowing that she had been through so much already, they hope that this young girl will remember this one good thing for the rest of her life.

Since “good news” stories rarely make headlines, we wanted to take a moment to highlight this story.
