A 7-year-old boy from Maryland showed an amazing amount of courage when two armed robbers entered the GameStop where he was browsing video games. When one of the robbers tried to grab him, the young boy fought back by punching him.
According to Montgomery County police, the two suspects stormed into the Silver Spring video game store over the weekend wearing masks and holding firearms. A surveillance video of the incident can viewed above.
In all the chaos, the boy's father did not see that his son had attempted to fend off the robber with punches. But after he watched the surveillance footage, he couldn't help but be proud. “Of course, we think our son is brave and a strong kid,” he told WTTG-TV. “I think it was his natural instinct taking over there.”
None of customers or GameStop employees were harmed. The suspects, who have not been caught, made off with cash and property.
