Fox News online reports this story from the UK:
An 11-year-old boy demonstrated The Force when he defended his mom by hitting an attacker with a toy lightsaber.
The man, in his 30s, fled after being confronted by the youngster outside a bakery in Swardeston, near Norwich, England.
Police said the boy hit the man with his toy after the man had punched and verbally abused his mother as she approached her car.
Gotta love a pre-teen who 1. carries a lightsaber while doing the shopping with his mom and 2. knows how to use it to protect her! Bravo!
