Christian Lunsford, Son Of Alleged Mugger, Returns Stolen Money To Victim, Gets A Nice Surprise (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

"Like father, like son" does not apply at all to this kindhearted teen.

After his dad allegedly mugged a woman visiting her husband's gravesite in Moore, Okla., Christian Lunsford made sure to make amends.

The 15-year-old asked to meet with the victim, Tona Herndon, so he could give her the $250 he'd recently received from his dad, News 9 reported.

Shane Lunsford, 39, had been arrested on Friday, after allegedly trying to use one of Herndon's credit cards. He remains in custody, according to Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office records.

"When I found out this whole situation, I didn't know if [the money] was hers or his or how," Lunsford told the station. "I just knew I needed to give the money to her."

But when the families met at a local church on Sunday, Herndon had her own surprise -- she immediately returned the cash to Lunsford.

"He gave and I received, and I gave and he received," she told News 9. "So it worked out."
