D.C. police help autistic man lost, stranded in city get back home safely to New York City



WASHINGTON (ABC7) — D.C. police helped make sure an autistic man visiting the city got back home safely.

The police department’s official Twitter account wrote Saturday afternoon that they helped get a bus ticket for a 24-year-old man after he became lost and stranded in the city.

According to police, the man rode a bus from New York City where he lives to D.C. when he ran into his situation.

Once officers located him and found out he was unable to buy a bus ticket to get back home, D.C. police’s 3rd District officers stepped in to help with what the Twitter account described as a “selfless act" to help him get back to New York.

Police said the man has since made it back home safely.

The entire situation appears to have happened Friday evening.
