(WTRF) – When a Starbucks officer spotted a man lingering near a customer, the officer handed the young woman a note to make sure she was okay.
Brandy Roberson posted on Facebook that her 18-year-old daughter was alone in a Corpus Christi store, Texas, Starbucks, when a man approached her and started talking to her.
“She was sitting at a table alone and studying, and this man came up and noticed that she was studying and wanted to talk to her about it,” Roberson said. WKYC. “I think it just got really loud and lively.”
The barista noticed the man’s behavior, Roberson said, and handed her daughter “extra hot chocolate that someone forgot to take” with a note on the side of the cup. The note read, “Are you okay? Do you want us to intervene? If you do, remove the lid from the cup.
Roberson said her daughter felt safe and did not remove the lid, letting the baristas know she was okay. The teen said she appreciates the staff watching over her and taking the extra step to make sure she feels safe.
A Starbucks spokesman confirmed this Nexstar story, but did not offer any other details of the incident.
“How grateful I am to people who care about others!” Roberson said in her Facebook post, thanking the workers.
