When the brave little saw the axe she fled, and later also helped her grandfather out of the room and away from danger.

Five teenage boys have been charged with aggravated robbery, injuring with intent, and breaching bail. A sixth suspect is still to be found.  

Her proud father, Suhail Patel, said his daughter was very brave for standing up to the robber and that she was "always trying to help people". "We've been trying to say to her, 'you're the bravest girl,' that sort of thing," Suhail told. He also informed that his brave daughter has been slightly shaken by the incident, but is recovering well.
