In what might be one of the most adorable cases of heroism captured on film, a 7-year-old boy took it upon himself to try and take down the armed robbers who invaded the Gamestop where he was shopping.
On Friday, May 20, 2016 at approximately 8:56 p.m., two suspects, armed with handguns, entered the GameStop store located at 10100 Colesville Road in Silver Spring. One suspect initially ordered three customers, including a young boy, against the wall near the counter. Immediately afterward, both walked behind the counter and ordered the two clerks to the floor while an undisclosed amount of cash and personal property was taken. The suspects then fled out the front door.
The three customers in the store were a family, including the small child. When the gunmen ordered them all to the floor, the boy saw his opening and attacked one of the robbers.
“He’s a brave little boy, and he recognized he was in a dangerous situation,” the father says. “And there was a stranger and he was trying to defend himself.”
