(Scroll down for video) A police officer in California, stopped a young black man because he was walking in an industrial area late at night.

The officer questioned the teenager as to what he was doing in the area after all businesses were closed.

Benicia Police Cpl. Kirk Keffer was patrolling an industrial area late at night late when he saw Jourdan Duncan walking in the area.

Duncan, 19, explained that he was walking home and that he walked eight miles to and from work every day. The officer offered to drive him home and the teenager accepted the offer.

During the trip, Duncan said that he walks four hours each day to and from work because his car broke down and he does not want to spend the money to fix it as he is saving money for college.

Keffer went to his police union to see if they would help him buy a bike for Duncan, and they did.

Duncan was surprised when he was presented with a brand new bike, helmet and free tune-ups for the bike.

The teens mother said that she was not aware of the fact that her son was walking to work everyday.
