WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — A nine-year-old girl helped fight off a man who robbed her mother.

It happened in early November in Florida. Video shows the man trying to steal Danielle Mobley’s purse in a parking lot.

That’s when Journee Nelson runs over and begins hitting the man in the face. The suspect made off with the purse, but police arrested him two days later. Journee was honored by police for her bravery and given a medal. But they’re warning others against taking matters into their own hands.
