SILVER SPRINGS, Md. – As police look for the men responsible for robbing a Maryland Game Stop, a 7-year-old boy is being praised for his heroic attempt to stop it.
Montgomery Police Department released surveillance footage showing the May 20th robbery unfold.
Two masked men with guns are seen storming the video game store, ordering the shoppers to go against the wall next to the counter, where two clerks are standing by. As they move passed the kid, he jumps into action and throws punches at one of the thieves, apparently with a video game in his hand.
However, the robber overpowers him and drags him behind counter. The duo proceeds to steal an undisclosed amount of money and personal belongings and flee, police said.
No one was injured throughout the robbery but the boys' parents were still in shock afterwards.
"It was scary," the boy's father, who did not want to be identified, told News4 in D.C. "You're never prepared for something like that. You're not. So, you don't wish it on your worst enemy."
Authorities continue to investigate the robbery.
