This is one brave kid.
On Friday morning, an 11-year-old boy in Orange County, North Carolina was home alone enjoying his time off from school. That’s when a stranger came up to his front porch and knocked on the door. After not responding to the stranger, a man broke a window and came in through the back.
The man grabbed a pellet gun and the boy's cell phone and told him to stay in his closet. The boy refused to listen and grabbed a nearby machete and used it against the intruder.
Police describe the boy as a star baseball player, and struck the intruder in the back of the head, causing him to lose quite a bit of blood. The man then fled the scene with two other individuals. He later checked himself into a hospital with a head injury and was then identified as 19-year-old Jataveon Dashawn Hall.
Orange County Sheriff Charles Blackwood applauded the child’s bravery during the break-in.
Hall fled the hospital and is now on the run. He was expected to be charged with breaking and entering, second-degree kidnapping, interfering with emergency communications, and assault on a child under 12.
