A 9-year-old girl is being called a hero after she fought off a man who robbed her mom in a supermarket parking lot.

The incident happened outside Sabor Tropical Supermarket in West Palm Beach, Florida on November 2.

West Palm Beach police say Danielle Mobley and her daughter Journée Nelson were walking back to their car when a robber — identified as 29-year-old Demetrius Jackson — ran up and tackled Mobley to the ground.

Mobley struggled with Jackson who snatched her purse containing a Samsung phone, $40 in cash, several bank cards, a Coach wallet, her concealed carry permit and chewing gum.

While grown men stood nearby and did nothing, little Journée threw punches at Jackson’s face then chased him as he fled with her mom’s purse.

“She actually jumped up and chased him four houses down the block with me chasing her, calling her back,” Mobley said during a news conference.

Surveillance video below shows the struggle between Mobley, Journée and the robber and the chase that ensued.

For her bravery, little Journée was honored by the West Palm Beach Police Department last week.

“I wouldn’t recommend that you confront an individual like that,” said West Palm Beach Police Chief Frank Adderley. “I bet he was shocked when she hit him right in his face… He was not expecting that. I think she hit him pretty hard.”

Journée took photos with her parents during a tour of the West Palm Beach Police Department.
