A teenager just rescued a young girl from being sexually assaulted at a Target store in Boston. Score one for humanity.
17-year-old Cameron Cook told CBS that while he was out shopping with his mom in South Bay, he noticed a “demonic” looking man eyeing a small girl and touching himself.
I seen the guy grabbing himself, and my mom goes, ‘Cam let’s go, keep walking,’ I was like, no, something’s going on.
At that moment, the man thrust himself on the girl, and that’s when Cameron stepped in.
“So I went up to him, I was like, ‘Excuse me sir, do you know her?’ And then the first thing he said was, ‘I’m not a pervert, I’m not a pervert.’ I was like, I didn’t ask you that sir.” Sounds like the drunk asshole doth protest too much. Then Cameron told the suspect to leave the store, and, guess what?
“I could smell the liquor coming from his mouth.”
“He was big, and Cameron had no fear at all,” says Heather Cook. “He just stood firm on the fact that he knew that was this man was doing was wrong.”
Video surveillance has the man muttering to himself that he didn’t do anything wrong before leaving the store to enter a waiting car.The mother of the little girl is said to be very thankful for the intervention, she was in the bathroom at the time.
Just another reason why women travel to the bathroom in groups. There won’t always be a Cameron Cook around to make things right.
