( 4UMF NEWS ) 6-Year-Old Girl Defends Man Against Axe-Wielding Robber:

Bravery doesn’t know age.

And nothing proves that more true than 6-year-old Sarah Patel who said she “wasn’t scared” when she saw a group of alleged robbers storm her family’s electrical shop.

nstead of running away from an axe-wielding assailant, the Auckland girl ran straight toward him when she spotted the man kicking a store employee on the ground, the New Zealand Herald reported.

CCTV footage shows the small girl running up to the intruder and pulling at his leg as he beats on a man lying on the ground. She told the paper she was “trying to save” Jordan Byrt, a young worker at the store.

Sarah was unable to stop the attacker before fear caught up with her — she eventually ran away and was escorted to safety by her grandfather.

Byrt, who was not seriously injured, said he was trying to serve as a distraction so the others could exit the shop unharmed.

“I turned around and saw the boss’ young daughter here and I just tried to get them out as soon as I can, just trying to be a distraction,” the 19-year-old explained. “I ended up being pinned just in the corner. They asked me where the safe was and they kicked me in the face.”

Little did he know, his own courage would be returned by little Sarah.

“I’m very fortunate she didn’t get hurt,” her father, Suhail Patel said after watching his daughter’s moment of bravery back.

According to the newspaper, five teenagers face charges of aggravated robbery, injuring with intent and breaching bail, in connection with the incident.
