Mystery officer plays basketball with San Antonio kid

SAN ANTONIO, TX (KENS) — A San Antonio mom is speaking out after capturing a heartwarming video that went viral.

It was only meant to be shared with friends and family, but the San Antonio police department got wind of it too.

And the mom is now on the lookout for the mystery cop on the video.

Twelve-year-old Jacob Aguirre loves a good game of b-ball. He hopes to one day play for the spurs.

He practices outside his Southside home with his younger brothers.

But on Wednesday night, he got to play with someone he considers a hero, wearing a different color of uniform.

His mom caught it all on her cell phone.

When Jacob first saw the San Antonio police officer slow down, he said he was a little weary.

The officer told Jacob he was on break, and they played for 15 minutes.

Jacob bragged to his friends in school. Mom posted her video on Facebook. Someone then shared the video on SAPD's page, which generated a lot of likes and positive comments.

No one has been able to figure out the identity of this mystery officer is. The mother wants to find him and thank him.

And Jacob, well, he wants to thank him too and maybe get a rematch.

SAPD is currently trying to find out who the officer is to put him touch with the family.
