MIAMI (AP) — A 3-year-old boy in South Florida who was punched recently in the face by a stranger in a random attack was greeted for Christmas not by Santa but by police officers who showered him with gifts.

Miami police officers also let the boy sit in a police cruiser Friday and put on a light show with their cruisers in the street.

The boy was sucker punched by a man earlier this month in a Walgreens store in Miami, according to surveillance video released by authorities.
