A 9-year-old Florida girl is being hailed a hero by local cops after fighting off a robber earlier this month by slugging him in his face after he tried heisting her mom’s purse.

West Palm Beach police officials on Thursday honored Journee Nelson for her bravery in the Nov. 2 attack outside a local supermarket, giving the courageous child a medal, certificate and a Target gift card, The Miami Herald reported.

The article goes on to state the following:

Surveillance video shows Danielle Mobley and her daughter walking up to their car in the parking lot. A man — identified as 29-year-old Demetrius Jackson — then suddenly runs at Mobley while she is putting her groceries away, and tackles her to the ground.


As the mugger tugs at her mother’s purse, the young girl runs to her aid, throwing a series of punches at the robber’s face.

Journee told WSVN, “I fought back. I had to save my mom.”

After she was pushed to the floor, the 9-year-old ran after the suspect as he fled the scene with the purse.

The suspect was arrested two days later and charged with robbery and battery.

Journee was honored by local police after her act of bravery, though officers warned against taking matters into your own hands.

West Palm Beach Chief Frank Adderley said, “I wouldn’t recommend that you confront an individual like that, but in the heat of the moment things happen. I bet he was shocked … because [you] definitely could tell on the video that he was not expecting that, and her actions were perfect timing in this particular situation, and I think she hit him pretty hard.”
