Mom buys teen PlayStation 4 for good grades, gets robbed on bus


A mother bought a North Bay, Caflif., teen a PlayStation 4 as a way to reward him for his good grades, but the two were robbed a short time later on a public bus.

As bad as it sounds, no one was hurt and there is a happy ending.

The mother, Alana, spent nearly $300 on a PlayStation 4 for her teenage son as a reward for turning his grades around. She bought the system on Black Friday, but it was soon taken away on a bus when the PlayStation 4 was stolen.

Surveillance images show the man who Alana says stole the game system. He hasn’t been caught, but this story is not about him.

It’s about what went down the next day when people who care learned about what happened.

Alana works at Petco in Santa Rosa. Her boss and coworkers felt for her, and they all chipped in to buy a new game system.

You can hear the hugging and kissing.

Alana’s son is all smiles even after the actions of a Grinch on a city bus.
