Brave 7-year-old fights off Gamestop robbers

SILVER SPRING, MD (NBC News) Police are looking for two gunmen who robbed a Silver Spring, Maryland GameStop, and were punched by a young boy in the store while carrying out their crime.

The robbery was caught on the store’s security camera.

The two suspects entered the store just before 9pm on May 20th.

One suspect initially ordered three customers, including the 7-year-old boy, against the wall behind the counter.

The boy didn’t go without a fight, punching one of the suspects several times first.

“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 ordered the clerks to the floor and took an undisclosed amount of money.

“It was scary. You’re never prepared for something like that. You’re not. So, you don’t wish it on your worst enemy,” said the boy’s father, who also did not want to be identified.
