What a brave girl! In New Zealand, six-year-old Sarah Patel attacked the ax-wielding men who tried to rob her family’s shop. CCTV caught the footage:
The Guardian reported:
CCTV footage shows the masked men kicking, punching and threatening employees with an axe and a crowbar, or iron lever.
In the video Sarah rushes at one of the attackers standing over an employee with an axe, and tries to get him to stop his attack.
Patel told the New Zealand Herald she was “trying to save” the employee and that she “wasn’t scared” of the bad guy.
When Patel glimpsed the attacker’s axe she fled. She later helps her grandfather out of the room and away from danger.
Sarah’s father, Suhail Patel, told TVNZ he was “proud” of his daughter and though she had been shaken by the incident, she was recovering well.
“Last night she was very upset. Was in shock. We’ve been trying to say to her ‘You’re the bravest girl’, that sort of thing,” he said.
Oh, it didn’t stop there! Sarah, her grandfather, and her mother piled into the family car and chased down the suspects in the family car with the police not far behind.
The police caught five of the six suspects and charged them with aggravated robbery, injuring with intent, and breaching bail.DONATE
