Smart 10-Year-Old Scares Off Potential Robber

One smart 10-year-old from Bakersfield, CA scares off a potential robber as he is walking into her family’s garage.


Lola was in the driveway, sitting in the passenger seat of her parent’s car, when she noticed something suspicious. She had just started the engine to turn on the air conditioning, and shortly after that, she saw a man approaching her house.

“I thought he might have been someone selling something or someone coming to pick something up,” she shares. “And then when he walked into my garage with no one in there, I just kind of felt like he’s not supposed to really be here.”

To defend her household, Lola started screaming at the man and scared off the suspected intruder.

“Hey! Get out! Get out of here!” she yells out of the car from the passenger seat. Her yells scared the man off and he ran down the street and away from the house. Thank goodness for this 10-year-old’s bravery and boldness! Even as a little girl, she was able to scare off a man that was double her size!

“She has a lot of confidence, and I feel like that’s what played a big role in that situation,” Lola’s dad explains. “It opens your eyes and shows everybody else exactly what could really happen in the blink of an eye.”

Lola’s parents are proud of their hero daughter and are thankful that she is also safe. Way to go Lola for stopping an attempted burglary!


1 Timothy 4:12-16
12 Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity. 13 Until I come, devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture, to preaching and to teaching. 14 Do not neglect your gift, which was given you through prophecy when the body of elders laid their hands on you. 15 Be diligent in these matters; give yourself wholly to them, so that everyone may see your progress. 16 Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.
