While 10-year-old boy was heading home from school as usual, he observed something strange. Fortunately, he came up with an idea to protect himself.
Sammy Green of Pottstown, Pennsylvania became aware that a lady was following him. His dad, Sam Green, spoke to the reporters and explained what had happened. Started strolling with him and asking him where his family was, where his father was, he explained.
Sammy was certain he didn’t know the woman. But she insisted that she knew his family and that he was expected to accompany her.
Sammy recalled that that woman said she probably knew him and was going to Wawa, and he was expected to go with her and grab anything he desired.
Feeling strange about the contact, the 10-year-old began to consider what he might do.
He noticed a familiar business and took a chance and approached it for assistance.
Sammy stepped into Dani Bee Funky and hurried to the checkout to seek for assistance. The smart boy approached the cashier and hurriedly whispered something into her ear, prompting her to respond.
He said to the cashier to pretend like she is his mom, this lady is following him, Sammy’s father said.
It can be from surveillance video that the cashier instantly stepped up to get between Sammy and the woman. However, the woman had arrived at the business and was standing at the door.
The cashier immediately shut the store’s entrance, leaving the woman outside, before locking the door.
The store’s owner, Dani Small, spoke about the event and commended her staff for assisting the young kid and acting quickly.
It couldn’t have been a simple scenario for the 17-year-old employee to face or manage, but she stepped up and kept the small child safe!
Officials detained the woman who was attempting to entice little Sammy away and referred her for mental health treatment.
We want to send thanks the young woman who assisted this small kid in escaping danger. What a wonderful way to assist someone in need!
