An Indianapolis police officer's act of kindness has gone viral.

The unnamed officer was photographed Monday as he pulled over to the side of the road and gave his boots to a homeless man, WRTV reports.

The touching moment was posted to Instagram by Indiana Pacers star Roy Hibbert and then shared around the Internet by his more than 180,000 followers.

"Just seen an Indy police officer pull over, go into his trunk n [sic] give a homeless guy a pair of shiny boots," wrote the center.

The post had more than 10,000 likes as of Tuesday afternoon.

The kind act echoed that of an NYPD officer in 2012 who gave a homeless man his boots in Times Square.

An AOL News attempt to reach Indianapolis police officials for further information was not successful.
