The incident was all captured on camera at 2 p.m. on December 13 at the Walgreens located at 1695 Northwest 20th Street in Allapattah.

Green was arrested on Friday charged with aggravated child abuse and possession of a stolen firearm. He was also charged on a warrant in Miami-Dade County for criminal mischief.

Samuel is now home recovering, thanks to help from Miami police who surprised him with a special visit to drop off presents.

According to court documents Green has three prior felony convictions, including abuse of an elderly, disabled adult.
