A Kid And His Lightsaber


The Force is strong with this one.

sw-kid.gifA woman who was assaulted on a Norfolk street was rescued by her 11-year-old son – who chased the assailant off with a toy lightsaber.

The incident began when a man in his thirties punched the woman on the arm and began verbally abusing her.

The woman was with her two children – the son, aged 11, and a daughter of six – at the time of the incident, which happened a long time ago (December 22) in a galaxy far, far away (Swardeston, just south of Norwich).

The Eastern Daily Press reports that the boy defended his mother by hitting the assailant with his lightsaber – an elegant weapon for a more civilized age.

The man fled, without even trying to persuade the boy to join him on the dark side.

PC Allan Jennings, of the local police, noted: ‘The incident caused quite a commotion and it is unlikely it would have gone unnoticed.

‘I would appeal for anyone who saw what happened to contact me,’ he added.

At last a Star Wars fan making the news for the right reasons.
