SILVER SPRING, Md. – You’ve probably heard that people either have a ‘fight or flight’ reaction when faced with a threat.

One little boy is definitely a fighter.

When thieves targeted a GameStop on Friday in Maryland, a 7-year-old boy and his parents were the only customers inside the store.

As the pair of robbers walked in the store, they ordered the family and the employees to get against the wall and on the ground.

However, the boy was not going to go quietly.

Surveillance video obtained by NBC Washington shows the little boy punching one of the suspects in the stomach several times before he is grabbed and put with his family.

“Well, he’s tough. He’s tough and, you know, I think instincts come out in situations like that,” said the boy’s mother.

The thieves made off with some cash and no one was hurt.
