Viral Facebook photos show Greensboro police officer changing woman’s tire

GREENSBORO, N.C. – A viral Facebook post shows a Greensboro police officer changing a woman’s tire.

Alexis Surratt recently posted two photos of the officer changing her tire for her after she said she blew it Wendover Avenue.

“I can’t fully express how grateful I am for police officers like him,” Surratt wrote in her Facebook post, which currently has more than 1,400 shares.

Greensboro Police Department Public Information Officer Susan Danielsen confirmed the photo and identified the officer as A.C. Blake.

“Our officers often do these simple acts to help people in their time of need,” Danielsen said. “Officers have a strong desire to be of service to others – that’s why they join the law enforcement profession.”
