A sweet moment in an otherwise tense and unfortunate situation was captured earlier today when a Wichita Falls Police officer comforted a child while the parents were being arrested.

Monday afternoon, a Texas Ranger happened upon the scene of an assault on Central Freeway. Nicole Clement and Avery Wilkins were arrested and charged with Aggravated Robbery while Clement received an additional charge of abandoning/endangering a child by leaving her child in the vehicle while robbing the victim.

While the two were processed, WFPD officer John Ricketts entertained the child, a moment that was captured in pictures posted to the City of Wichita Falls Facebook page.

In a time of tension and distrust of police being prominent online, this seems to be just the feel-good story needed to break it up.
