When it comes to robberies, you’ll sometimes get one of those stories where a random person saves the day. Or maybe the victims will remain blissfully unaware, like this horny couple who made out at a bar while it was under siege. But never has the hero been a 7-year-old kid—until now.

The Montgomery County Police Department in Silver Springs, Maryland, recently released a video of an armed robbery at a Game Stop. As you’ll see, the kid is just minding his own business until he sees the robbers, and attempts to fight one of them, because he’s the youngest badass ever.

Sadly, the kid doesn’t score the knockout, and the robbers made off with their score. Still, it was a noble attempt, and most importantly, no one was injured during the incident. Here’s hoping he just hides next time.
