While someone asking for a cop’s assistance might usually be caught in the middle of a crime or an emergency, this particular man had a more simple request — about his tie.
“He asked if either of us knew how to tie a tie,” Sergeant Howard Marshall said to Inside Edition.
Sergeant Marshall and his partner, Officer Abenet Carper, were patrolling a neighborhood when they noticed the man lingering around a bus terminal.
The man, Willie Hatcher, was dressed in formal clothes with a loose tie around his neck. The officers watched as Willie walked straight over to them and made his request.
“He had a job interview, and he didn’t know how to tie a tie,” Sergeant Marshall recalled.
“I said, ‘Absolutely.'”
Sergeant Marshall took the man’s tie from him, wrapped it around his own neck, and formed the knot. He then handed it back to Willie and made sure it was tied properly on the man’s shirt.
“We always want to have that interaction with the community. It’s good to see they can come to us and ask us for help anytime they need to,” Officer Carper said.
