OKLAHOMA CITY – An Oklahoma City officer has gone “above and beyond” after responding to a break-in at a family’s apartment.

Now, Sgt. Clifford Damon is receiving “a special thank you” from Diana, her daughter-in-law Alondra and young Grace.

According to the Oklahoma City Police Department, the deadbolt on Alondra’s apartment was busted while she and Grace were at Diana’s house.

Damon was told Alondra and little Grace were going to stay at Diana’s house however they didn’t know how to secure their belongings in the apartment since management wasn’t available at the time.

In “a kind message” on Facebook, Diana said that’s when Damon went to Walmart to buy a new deadbolt as well as “a pretty little pink stuffed lamb for Grace.”

The officer then installed the deadbolt while “patiently answering all of Gracie’s questions.”

The family said they are “very grateful” to Damon and the OKCPD.
