OPA-LOCKA, Fla. — The police officer who invited a teenage boy into his home as he fled from authorities for allegedly assaulting a foster parent claims the youth had no idea he was literally running into the law.

A Miami-Dade Schools Police detective on his day off said the teenager approached his home and told him, "'I'm running from the police, can you help me?'" The officer, who asked to remain anonymous, said he invited the teen into his home. He said his house guest told him he had "pushed" a foster parent.

The detective observed the boy remained clueless to the fact he had set foot into the home of a law enforcer. The teenager walked by several pictures on the walls showing his host in his police uniform, but he appeared not to notice them. The youth also failed to notice the police radio and handcuffs laying on a marble table.
