Jitendra “Jay” Singh Honored by City Council for His
Toledo City Councilman
Tyrone Riley, awestruck by a tale of forgiveness and
compassion, reached out to Jitendra “Jay” Singh, owner of a
7-Eleven on the corner of Berdan and Upton, and arranged to
have the businessman honored by Toledo City Council on
Tuesday, April 30.
Last week, Singh observed
on his store’s surveillance camera, a young teenager
shoplifting food. When he went out to confront the
youngster, he found out that the teenager had stolen because
he was hungry. Instead of calling the police, Singh gave the
youngster food – at no charge.
Singh’s employee, in fact,
was dialing 911 to bring the police to the store and was
told by his boss to stop calling.
