An armed robber was caught on tape holding up a clerk in a jewelry store in Istanbul, Turkey. But he didn’t count on the clerk’s 12-year-old son, who makes a thrilling rescue in this intense video.

The son’s brave intervention gives his dad time to join the fray, and the father/son crime-fighting duo eject the would-be robber (who was later arrested) from the shop just as quickly as he entered.

Watch a young boy’s lightning-quick response to save his father below.
