A 14-year-old Michigan boy defended his 8-year-old sister from a would-be kidnapper with a slingshot.
According to Alpena Post, Lt. John Grimshaw, a 17-year-old suspect, walked through the woods of a rural Alpena, Mich., property and grabbed the girl “like you’d see in a movie, his hand over the mouth, arm around the waist,” in footage published by local outlet UpNorthLive.
The girl’s brother fired two rounds at the kidnapper, striking him in the head and chest, allowing his sister to escape the kidnapper’s clutches. The slingshot injuries also assisted authorities in identifying the culprit.
“I mean he really is the one that saved that I believe saved his sister’s either life or from something seriously bad happening to her,” Grimshaw stated.

The suspect, whose name has not been released, has been arrested and charged as an ad*lt with one count of attempted kidnapping/child enticement, one count of attempted assault to do great bodily harm less than m*rder, and one count of assault and battery.
“It just goes to show that there’s evil out there. And it can find anybody anywhere,” Grimshaw said.
