TEEN HERO: 13-Yr Old Boy Takes On Thug To Save His Mom’s Life

This young teen boy has more courage than most adult men. Way to go. Check this out…

PHOENIX (KSAZ) –While most 13-year-olds were headed out the door for school Monday morning, one Phoenix teen found himself making a decision most adults would struggle with.

Phoenix police say the teen was forced to stab his mother’s boyfriend after the boyfriend went on the attack.

The man, identified as Keith Childress, exploded in anger and began beating the boy’s mother before turning his rage towards that boy and his 15-year-old sister.

That’s when the young man named Darvon grabbed a kitchen knife and fought back.

His mother told FOX 10 she had no doubt she would be dead or in a coma if it weren’t for her brave son jumping into action and doing what he had to do to protect his mother — by stabbing her boyfriend to stop him from a violent attack.

The 8th grade student was getting ready for school around 7 a.m. when Childress, who was visiting from out of town, began hitting and kicking her.

Police say when Darvon and his sister tried to stop Childress, he started beating them too.

“At that point, we have a 13-year-old that grabbed a kitchen knife and stabbed the suspect and stopped the confrontation at that point,” said Sgt. Trent Crump.

Darvon says he just did what he had to do to protect his mother.
