Officers at the 104 Precinct donated clothes, food and toys to a family that suffered from domestic violence.

Police officers from the 104th Precinct played Santa Claus for one Ridgewood family that recently suffered from domestic violence.

Officer Nicholas Cadavid and Sergeant Martha Lequerica organized a precinct donation collection for the family on Thursday, December 19, and raised more than $1,200.

Last week officers arrested a five-year-old boy’s father, whose name was withheld to protect the anonymity of the victims, for severely beating his son. The boy had bruises on his face and a gash on his forehead and need to be taken to a local hospital for stitches, police said.

“We see bad stuff every day but this one really stuck to us, when we saw the plight of this family,” said Captain Chris Manson of the 104th Precinct.

When the officers learned that the family of the boy was in need, they decided to donate some gifts. The boy lives with his mother and three other siblings, ages 11, 8, and a two-month-old infant in a Ridgewood apartment.

The officers brought the children snacks, bags filled with toys and clothes and boots for the cold weather. The money raised will go to buy bunk beds for the children.
