Sibling rivalry aside, one little girl from Lancaster, California was very fortunate to be with her older brother in December of 2014. The two children were playing in their fenced yard when something completely unexpected happened.

According to police, a 61-year-old man named Earl Williams, a total stranger, had entered the yard and asked the 4-year-old girl her name. Then, he tried picking her up and walking away.

Her 13-year-old big brother was watching, though, and quickly realized what he had to do. He clung onto his little sister’s arm and yelled for someone to call 911.
Police in the area were flagged down by neighbors and directed them to the children. Williams was immediately arrested.

He was charged with kidnapping and was held at a $100,000 bail. The only reason he was caught was because of the little girl’s brother who was rightfully called a hero.

“He was definitely quick on his feet,” Deputy Miguel Ruiz told KABC-TV Los Angeles. “He’s very responsible for his family and obviously his 4-year-old sister. So, at this point, he is our hero for today.”

The boy was commended for his brave actions. “He definitely acted on his own instincts,” the deputy told the Los Angeles Times.

The girl was completely unharmed during the incident. Meanwhile, her brother definitely deserved the praise he received.

Creepily enough, Jasmine Watts, a neighbor of the family, had noticed the man earlier. She was on a walk with her son when she was approached by the stranger.
“He was just calling me, ‘Hey, come here. Come here.’ I don’t know this guy, never seen him before. He was already talking to himself when me and my son came outside, so I’m just like, ‘Okay, this is really weird,’” Watts told ABC 7.


The police department was able to properly thank the children that live in the single parent home. For the holidays, police collected donated toys and gifted them to the household.

Later, according the The Antelope Valley Times, Williams received a sentence of 30 to life. This may not be a breaking story, but it has a timeless lesson: keep your eyes open and be ready to help others at any time.
