Video: 7-Year Old Teeny Hero Takes on Armed Robbers
This incredible surveillance footage from a GameStop video game store in Maryland shows a seven-year-old boy tackling an armed robber with a fluffy toy during a robbery. The young boy tried to stop the robbery by hitting a suspect with his toy. The footage shows him throwing punches with a stuffed animal.
The video shows brief glimpses of the parents, who quickly disappear from view. "They were on top of us really before we knew what was happening," recalled the parents, who have opted to remain anonymous. A mere 10 feet away, the youngster defended himself. He eventually broke free from the robbers and came to his parents.
To be sure, he was being reckless maybe having seen too many action movies, but you do have to admire the pluck of this kid.
