A 7-year-old girl who wrestled off a man at least twice her size was honored by Miami police on Tuesday for being one of the city's youngest crime fighters.
On July 27, A-nari Taylor was playing with her cousin, Brandon Mincey, 4, and other kids outside of Mincey's apartment when a man walked up to Mincey, screaming, “God told me to take him, God told me he’s coming with me,” according to police.
The would-be abductor, identified as 39-year-old David Moore, then allegedly grasped Mincey's arm, but Taylor sprung into action, punching and kicking him.
Taylor said she was frightened by the man, but she kept struggling with him to try to free her cousin.
"The man started pulling him, and we start pulling him back and I had to chop and kick him so he could let Brandon go," Taylor said after Tuesday's ceremony, in which she received a standing ovation. "Cause my mama always said safety is first."
