A six-year-old Israeli girl on Tuesday managed to run off a knife-wielding robber who had already threatened and stolen from two grown men.

The thief held up two apartments in the Ramat Gan suburb of Tel Aviv before knocking on the little girl’s door. When she refused to leave the house as instructed, the man threatened her with his knife. She then picked up a nearby broom and hit him with it, causing the robber to run away.

When police arrived the girl was able to provide an accurate description of the man, leading to his arrest a short time later.
