Two little girls from Russia have sent a thank you note to New York City police detectives who likely saved their father's life during a Los Angeles street attack.

The New York Police Department has posted the hand-written note from Nelli and Eva Makrich on its website.

Detectives Albert Ramos and Daniel Mulligan were in Los Angeles on official business when they subdued a man who was slashing Michael Makrich on Nov. 18 on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The tourist suffered a neck wound and required surgery.

His children's thank you note includes a drawing of an angel, complete with wings and a halo.
