The random act of kindness came after he saw Jess begging on the side of the street.

Roose told PerthNow he was overcome with sympathy after he heard her story.

“I saw a poor little girl fighting so much in her life at such a young age,” he said.

“I felt sorry for her.”

Video of the father walking to the ATM to withdraw $350 for the young woman was uploaded to the Brothers & Sisters Perth Facebook page.

"He asked why she was there, why we were with her and what we get out of it," she said.

"As Jess told him stories of the reality of living on the streets it was clear he was affected."

"He listened, and without another word, held out his hand and said 'Come with me, I'll sort you out.'"
