10-Year-Old Hero Saves Mom’s Wallet from Thief

A 10-year-old girl in California successfully fought off a would-be thief trying to steal her mom’s wallet. Santa Ana resident, Genesis Ramos, was sitting in the family car with her sister at the 7-Eleven while her mom, Grace, had popped inside to use the ATM. A man coming out of the store, who had ironically just shoplifted, saw Mrs Ramos’ wallet sitting on her car’s center console.

He walked up to the car and snatched the wallet, which prompted Genesis to chase after him. He tried to get into his own car and made a number of attempts to drive away. According to Genesis, “He was really close to closing (his car) door but I yanked it back open. He kept on trying to close it, but I kept on trying to open it, so he gave up.”

The thief then gave Genesis the wallet back and started to drive off. While he was driving off, Genesis took a picture of the license plate on his vehicle with her cell phone. Mrs. Ramos stated, “She’s so brave – I’m so scared when I think about that.” She went on to say, “Anything could happen, but thank God everything came out good.”

Police are now searching for the shoplifter, who is reportedly a store regular. While Genesis is happy to have saved her mom’s wallet, she knows that the situation could have gone quite bad, as well.
