In a combination of bravery and niavity that only a 4 year old boy can have, Stevie Long snuck away from the robbers that had his mother and sister at gun point, changed into his Power Rangers costume, and charged the crooks. In what must prove that they were on drugs, the thieves paniced and ran away at the sight of the 4 year old.
How very cool.
Get away from my family,” 4-year-old Stevie Long shouted, punctuating his screams with swipes of his plastic sword and hearty “yah, yahs.”
The robber and his accomplice, who was waiting outside the apartment Friday night, fled with credit cards, jewelry, cash and other items that Stevie’s mother, Jennifer Long, dumped from her purse.
“I scared the bad guys away,” Stevie said.
According to police: “During the robbery, a … boy snuck into his bedroom, dressed himself in a Power Ranger costume and armed himself with a plastic sword. The child then exited his room and approached the armed suspect, in an attempt to protect his family.”
Relatives said the robber abandoned plans to take Stevie’s mother to an ATM to withdraw cash when he saw Stevie. via The Detroit News Online.
