A family’s pit bull stopped two armed robbers from stealing their 3-month-old baby. Nayeli Garzon-Jimenez and Adolfo Angeles-Morales were on the phone together on Tuesday when a man and a woman broke into their home while Adolfo was at work.
Nayeli heard a sound from the kitchen door and saw a man and a woman break in through the door. Adolfo listened to what happened on the phone, “I hear the noise over my phone and she started screaming and crying, and said, someone just stuck their hand in the door.”
The man demanded she give them money or they would take the baby. Nayeli indicated she did not have any money so the woman grabbed her baby from her arms.
Nayeli’s husband Adolfo said, “She fought with the lady, because she tried to go by the kitchen, and she held her by the shirt. Then guy come back and hit her with a gun.”
The woman ran to the back door with the baby, but that’s when one of the couple’s two dogs in the backyard stopped her from escaping with the infant. The pit bull refused to let her through. Said Adolfo, “She try to run away through the back door, but one of our doggies – he didn’t let her go through the back door.”
The woman turned around and ran towards the front door and threw the baby back in Nayeli’s arms.
“Thank god everything’s okay, my baby and my wife,” said Adolfo.
Nayeli and their baby girl were taken to hospital and looked over. Mother has a bad bruise and cut on her forehead from where she was hit with the gun, but she and her baby are all right and safe at home thanks to their dog defending his family home.
