A fearless seven-year-old boy in Maryland took on two armed robbers in the middle of a heist and lived to tell about it.
The Silver Spring GameStop was being robbed when the boy who was temporarily separated from his father tried to come to the rescue by engaging one of the gun-wielding bandits, Fox 5 DC reported.
“We didn’t completely understand why,” the father told Fox 5. “Of course, we think our son is brave and a strong kid. But we didn’t exactly know why and when we saw the tape, we saw why.
“Because he saw somebody who was a stranger, who seemed most dangerous to him and he tried to defend himself. I think it was his natural instinct taking over there.”
The boy can be seen on the video confronting the man and punch him twice. Thankfully, the robber pushed him away him before escaping with cash and personal belongings, Fox reported.
