A five-year-old boy hailed as a superhero after he single-handedly protected his mother as few armed men broke into their home and started to shoot bullets.
A video of the whole incident went viral on social media. It can be seen in the video that four men were trespassing the house, three out of them were carrying guns. The armed men then broke into Tamika Reid’s (victim) house in South Bend, Indiana.
The five-year-old David Johnson jumped after the alleged robbers/killers to protect his family; mother and sister.
According to the police officials, the gunmen knocked on the door before and a teenager responded.
“A teenager opened the door and four men forced themselves inside.”
The South Bend police shared the video footage of the boy saving his family and wrote,
“You can see a little boy beating up one of the armed suspects as he tries to protect his house.”
“I tried to throw my car at him,” recalled the brave child.
PLEASE SHARE: We need your help identifying these individuals responsible for a home invasion. On September 30 around 10:30AM, officers were called to the 500 block of S. Grant in reference to shots fired. When they arrived, they learned there was a home invasion. Four males, all with hoodies on, knocked on the front door. A juvenile occupant opened the door and the four males forced themselves inside. At least three of the four were armed with handguns. The suspects fled the scene and more shots were fired. Luckily, no one was physically injured. This video is extremely disturbing. You can see a little boy hitting one of the armed suspects as he tries to defend his home. It is our job now to defend him. If you have any information on who these men are, please call Michiana Crime Stoppers at 574-288-STOP or 800-342-STOP. You can also call our South Bend Police Department Investigative Bureau at 574-235-9263.
