Generous Oklahomans help new family after robbery | Crime
OKLAHOMA CITY – A metro family who said they were robbed while at the hospital with their newborn received a big gift Friday.
A couple, who wanted to remain anonymous, purchased a new flatscreen television for Tyree Hoover and his family.
The television was dropped off at the station and delivered to the Hoover family Friday afternoon.
“I never thought anybody would ever do anything like this for me; that is so great,” Hoover said.
Hoover told police that they returned home with their newborn last month only to find their house burglarized.
He said the thieves stole several flatscreen televisions, two computers, jewelry, video game systems and cash.
In total, a police report listed nearly $4,500 in stolen items.
Hoover and his wife were extremely thankful for the gift and the generosity.
They’ve now decided that they want to pay it forward and give the television to another family in need.
“The people that donated this to me they are the best people on the face of this earth and I want to show them that I can be a great person also,” a teary-eyed Hoover said.
They are now looking for a deserving family.
