A 7-year-old boy faced an armed robber head-on while shopping for a toy with his parents at a GameStop store in Silver Spring, Maryland.

Surveillance video shows two hooded men wearing masks rush into the store on 10100 Colesville Road on Friday, May 20 just before 9 p.m.

One suspect can be seen trying to grab the little boy before the boy punches the suspect in the stomach a couple of times.

“Well, he’s tough. He’s tough and, you know, I think instincts come out in situations like that,” said the boy’s mother, who did not want to be identified.

The suspects then told two store clerks to get on the floor while they took cash and personal property, police said. They then ran out of the store through the front door, police said.
No one was hurt during the robbery.

  1. “Anyone with information regarding the suspect or this crime is asked to call the Robbery Section at (240) 773-5070.”

    I think they were obamies sons?

  2. The kid’s got more balls than most Americans in this country. My hats off to him for at least trying to fight them off, which is more than I can say for the rest of the cowards in this country.
