MINNESOTA – An 8-year-old boy was the target of an assault.

He was punched and fell to the ground as a thief tried to get away with his iPad.

The young victim was leaving a daycare center with his aunt when the would-be suspect made his move.

The manager of a nearby restaurant witnessed the crime and ran after the thief, and so did the boy’s aunt.

During that run the thief threw down the boy’s iPad, breaking it.
