(DailyMail) – A plucky 12-year-old boy stopped an armed robber in his tracks by disarming him with his martial arts skills and sending him packing from a Turkish jewelry shop.
The man walked into the store in Istanbul’s Bagcilar district carrying a bag and wearing a surgical mask, baseball cap, and sunglasses.
He then slammed the satchel down on the counter and grabbed a gun from inside the waistband of his jeans.
The boy, who was already in the shop, reacted at lightening speed and leapt towards the man.
He grabbed the gun and punched the man in the stomach, then wrestled the robber out of the shop, slamming the door behind him.
