LAPD officer surprises sisters with bikes after theirs were stolen

LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- An officer at the Los Angeles Police Department's Rampart Division gifted two sisters brand-new bicycles after theirs were stolen from their mother's car during a burglary.

Earlier this week, LAPD Headquarters shared footage of the sisters checking out their new bikes.

In a Facebook post, LAPD said that officer Mancia, the officer who had taken the report from the girls' mother, "knew what needed to be done next" and "reached into his wallet, and into his heart, and bought both girls a new bike."
