A would-be robber in Florida picked the wrong little girl to try and rob last week, catching a tiny fist in the puss before his day ended in police custody.
The little 9-year-old girl, a fearsome Journee Nelson, and her mom were doing some grocery shopping in West Palm Beach when a career criminal grabbed mom’s purse and knocked her down yelling that she should let go of the thing, Fox News reported.
Journee’s mom, Danielle Mobley, told police that the crook told her, “You’re going to make me pop you,” if she didn’t release the purse.
But hit turns out he wasn’t the one to be giving the pops.
Who would you vote for if the elections were held today?
Because little Journee jumped up and began delivering a swift series of punches right to the crook’s face.
“I fought back. I had to save my mom,” the fourth-grader said.
The video is amazing. Little Journee did not hesitate:
West Palm Beach Police Chief Frank Adderley praised the mighty girl.
“I wouldn’t recommend that you confront an individual like that but in the heat of the moment things happen. I bet he was shocked when she kicked him right in the face because he definitely could tell on the video that he was not expecting that, and her actions were perfect timing in this particular situation, and I think she hit him pretty hard,” Adderley said.
Chief Adderley honored a 9-year old child today for bravery as she ran to her mother’s defense to fend off a brazen robber. An #arrest was swiftly made in this case.
