Kidnapper Snatches Toddler From Mom, Then 8-Yr-Old Brother Fights Back.

When faced with danger, kids have the amazing tendency to do exactly the right thing. We’ve seen teens chase down a kidnapper on their bikes and toddlers who are barely able to talk, call 911, but every now and again a story surfaces that renews our sense of surprise.


An 8-Yr-Old from Glendale, California is being hailed a hero after likely saving the life of his little brother. The young man, his mother, and 2-yr-old brother were waiting outside a local elementary school when a strange woman approached. The trio turned to face the newcomer who commented on the mother’s ‘beautiful baby.’

That was when all hell broke loose.


In a swift motion, the stranger identified as Lisa Arnold, struck the mother in the face and tried to kidnap the two year old… but his older brother stepped in at exactly the right time.


The little one ‘strongly’ told Arnold to let his brother go, then hit and punched the offender until she finally became frightened and set the toddler free.

The identity of the little guy has not been revealed in order to protect him, but we can celebrate his heroic, fearless actions that day.
