Fearless Boy, 7, Punches Armed Robber With Stuffed Toy During Game Store Burglary
Incredible surveillance footage captures the moment a seven-year-old boy tackled an armed robber with a fluffy toy during a robbery.
Two masked men in hoodies stormed GameStop, a video game store, in Silver Spring, Maryland at 9pm last Friday.
But before they made it to the cashier, one came face-to-face with a child customer.
The suspect tries to grab the boy – but the boy punches him twice in the stomach.
Unfortunately the child’s efforts were not enough.
The men pushed him and his mother against a wall then ordered staff at gunpoint to hand over cash and their belongings.
They ran out the front of the store, which is just north of Washington D.C., and escaped in a car.
However, police praised the efforts of the boy, who used a toy in his valiant act of self-defense.
