11-Year-Old Thwarts Burglar With Machete

We never thought we’d be telling you about how proud a dad would be of his 11-year-old son for scaring someone with a machete but here we are!

Braydon Smith, 11, was home alone when a 19-year-old burglar broke into his North Carolina home.

The burglar pointed a pellet gun found in the home at the boy who knew it wasn’t loaded but played along anyways when the crook wanted him to get in a closet.

When he wasn’t paying attention, the young boy whacked him in the back of the head with a machete!

Not only did the kid really get the guy but he also gave him a stern talking-to.

“You shouldn’t have done what you’ve done,” he said. “You’re better off to get a job than breaking into other people’s houses.”

Then the guy took off and ended up arrested and Smith’s dad isĀ superĀ proud!
