A kidnapper with a knife in a busy section of Middelburg Central Business District in Mpumalanga, South Africa, attempted to take a child in a car with his mother and brother in November but his brother jumped into action deterring the armed man by hitting the kidnapper. The mother said the man was suspicious but she thought her car doors were locked when the man suddenly opened the door and snatched the youngest boy.

His big brother jumped from the car without hesitating and hit the kidnapper which forced the man to drop the child. The mother then chased the suspect but stopped when he threatened to kill her.

Police are still investigating this case.
