Man speechless after checking Ring doorbell when honest teens knocked on his door

Man speechless after checking Ring doorbell when honest teens knocked on his door

The duo didn't think twice before doing the right thing

A bloke was left speechless after an honest young couple knocked on his door and returned £180 he’d dropped on the floor outside.

Paul Lyon had withdrawn the cash while he was out doing a bit of shopping near his home on Knowsley Road in St Helens, Merseyside, yesterday (26 November). You can see the interaction here:

After returning home, Paul says he was inside for less than a minute when he heard a knock on the door and found a young couple outside.

The pair - who have since been named as Jarrod and Charlie - had seen Paul drop his cash and kindly returned it.

Paul said: "I'd gone the shop to get some stuff to make breakfast and decided to get some money out. As I got home, within 30 seconds I heard the doorbell so answered it and there was a young couple standing there.

"They asked me if I'd dropped any money and I didn't know at the time but when I checked, I was missing the money. I thanked them and tried to give them some as a thank you but they wouldn't accept anything.

Paul Lyon was shocked after opening his door to the couple.

"I checked the video doorbell back to see where I'd dropped the money, and the video before showed the couple walking down the road just behind me and they followed me behind to tell me I'd dropped the money. They quite easily could have walked off with the money and I would never have realised.

"I put a post on Facebook and it got a lot of attention. Some family members have messaged me to say they are so proud and they are only 17. I wasn't expecting it.

"I could tell by their personalities that they would've been gutted had that happened to them, both as honest as each other."

Helen Pye said it was her son, Jarrod, and his partner, Charlie, who were the Good Samaritans. She said their families were both ‘so proud’.

Helen said: "We’re all so proud of them both - even before this they are two of the loveliest and hardworking people you could ever meet.”

The teens have been praised for their kind actions.

Charlie's mum, Sarah, added: "We think she's an amazing girl and we're extremely proud of their actions."

Paul shared footage of the interaction on Facebook, writing: "These two honest people came knocking my door this morning after realising I dropped £180 on the floor.

"They could have easily walked away with it. I offered a cash reward but they refused to take it even though I insisted, they still refused. I really hope they have a great Christmas."

The post has since attracted plenty of attention, with people rushing to praise the honesty of the young couple.
