A police officer in California who was well-known for distributing gift bags to homeless women at shelters was arrested.

About 4 months ago, the San Francisco Police Department (SFPD) received a call from someone regarding a sex abuse claim against one of their officers.

The officer was placed on desk duty and was not allowed on field jobs while he was being investigated.

Now, police arrested 30-year-old Justin McCall, a 4-year veteran of the police department, on charges of sexual abuse on an unconscious person. McCall was suspended without pay.

On the SFPD Cares Facebook page, police wrote about the kindness done by McCall.

“On his own time and using his own money, the Tenderloin Station cop prepared 100 Valentine’s Day gift bags, filled with candy, flowers, stuffed animals, and cards, handmade by St. Anthony-Immaculate Conception School students, for distribution at a San Francisco women’s shelter.

“These women are having a hard time, and we let them know people care about them. It makes me feel good seeing them happy,” the police wrote.
