Two Chicago Police detectives are gathering community support that will help them play Santa to a brother and sister they met during a child abuse investigation.

Detectives Joseph Mancilla and Pamela Childs learned that this was the children's second rescue from an abusive home. The children are ages 5 and 6.

The boy and girl told the detectives what they want for Christmas and the detectives have asked their fellow police officers to help them check off items from the list. And the detectives now have asked the public for donations, which can be dropped off at the Second District reception desk on Cottage Grove Avenue.

According to a Chicago Police Department news release sent Saturday, the young girl asked Detective Mancilla: "Will you be my daddy for Christmas?"
