A four-year-old Milwaukee girl is being called a hero after her honesty foiled a home invasion robbery plot by her 17-year-old babysitter and her 16-year-old boyfriend.

After her babysitter told police her employer’s home had been burglarized by two Black men, four-year-old Abby Dean chimed in set the record straight.

“Wednesday was the worst day in my life,” Abby told local Fox affiliate WITI.  “They told us to get out of the house ’cause they wanted to steal stuff.”

After grabbing a number of items in the home, including Abby’s kitty bank, iPod, Xbox, and Wii, the babysitter told police that one of the robbers looked like the next door neighbor.

Cody Oaks, Dean’s neighbor, says police handcuffed him and questioned him for hours about the robbery, until Abby jumped in to tell authorities they’d nabbed the wrong guy.

“It wasn’t the right skin color,” the pint-size heroine said, noting the robbers were white, not Black. That’s when the babysitter cracked and confessed to the crime.

Oaks says the babysitter’s actions could have had tragic outcomes for him and his family, and he hopes she learns from this ordeal.

The babysitter and two accomplices were arrested and may face robbery, burglary and perjury charges stemming from the incident.

    so tired of this ish! this man could have had his entire life ruined. She actually said the black man that robbed her looked like her neighbor? I mean she could have said anything, hell if she would have said two white men she could have gotten away with it. Dumbass! Yet we play the race card? Really that ish is on both sides, lets wake up people. Why was it so easy for her to say two black men? But to point out her neighbor whom she knew was innocent wow that’s a crime in itself. All races commit crimes but when blacks are singled out that’s when there is a problem. And this problem needs to be addressed soon. Ish hasn’t gotten better its just getting worse, among ourselves and the world as a whole.
