8-year-old chases away mother's attacker

A stick-wielding 8-year-old foiled a burglary that could have turned deadly, according to police.

A man came into a home on the fourth block of Ericson Avenue in Buffalo and jumped on a woman, punching her twice in the face, according to a police report filed early Saturday morning.

The woman's son, 8, grabbed a stick and started yelling that he would call the police, the report said, and the suspect fled on foot. According to the report, this was the third incident involving the man and woman.
