A bride-to-be who got punched in the face is getting a gift from cops who responded to the fight.

Carmen Rivera was working at a Dollar Tree when she was punched by a customer multiple times. The hits left big bruises on her face and chest.

“The victim did very well,” said Sgt. Dan Foss with the Madera Police Department. “Just tired to keep the peace and unfortunately when she did that she was hit in the face.”

When the officers learned Rivera is getting married this weekend, they pulled money together to hire and airbrush makeup artist to conceal her bruises. Rivera says she is grateful and surprised at their generosity.
