Young Boy Attempts To Stop Armed Robbery

Silver Spring, MD - A 7-year-old Montgomery County boy is getting high praise for his bravery after an armed robbery at a GameStop store in Silver Spring and it was all caught on surveillance video.

At around 8:56 p.m. Friday, police said two masked men walked into the store in the 10100 block of Colesville Road armed with handguns. In the video released by Montgomery County police, you can see the boy fight off one of the robbery suspects who tried to grab him.

The boy’s father, who did not want to be identified, said he and his wife were separated from their son when the suspects came into the store. They ordered two store clerks, the 7-year-old and the boy's parents to get down on the floor behind the counter.
