PONTIAC (WWJ) – Authorities have released a dramatic 911 call made by a young Pontiac boy after a couple of would-be robbers broke into his family home.

Oakland County Sheriff’s officials said four children were at home with their mom when two men entered their house in northeast Pontiac.

It was a quick-thinking 8-year-old boy who ran next door to call for help.

“And a dude came to my house with and gun, and tell my mama to lay down,” the child told the dispatcher. “I’m at the neighbors house and the dude’s in my house …”

“I don’t know what’s going on,” the neighbor said, when the youngster handed her the phone. “This little boy just beat on my door and he asked for help and I let him in.”

The brave boy only wished he could do more.

“How old are you?” the operator asked.

“Eight,” the child replied. “And I’m still short.”

The boy’s mother told deputies that the intruders forced her to the floor, demanded money, and then took off when they couldn’t find anything of value.

No one was hurt.

Oakland County Undersheriff Mike McCabe says they’re still looking for suspects.
