SUNNYSIDE, Wash. - The Sunnyside Police Department asked for the community's help Tuesday after a young man with autism had his iPhone stolen.
"He uses his iPhone phone to calm him," the department said in a Facebook post. "Does anyone have a extra cell phone or iPad they would be willing to part with?"
Officers said within 45 minutes of posting the request, several citizens had reached out to offer help and the need for a new phone had been met.
"You guys are absolutely wonderful!" an updated post said. "We can't thank you enough!"
