Cameron Cook was just a regular teen at Target with his mother one weekend when he noticed that something strange happening at the location. He saw a man he described as having “a demonic look on his face.”

“I seen the guy grabbing himself, and my mom goes, ‘Cam let’s go, keep walking,’ I was like, no, something’s going on.”

He saw that the man with the demonic face was focused intently on a young girl pushing a cart. He then thrust himself upon the young girl, and Cameron knew he had to intervene.

“So I went up to him, I was like, ‘Excuse me sir, do you know her?’ And then the first thing he said was, ‘I’m not a pervert, I’m not a pervert.’ I was like, I didn’t ask you that sir,” Cameron told the Boston CBS Local News Team.

“He was big, and Cameron had no fear at all,” said his mother. “He just stood firm on the fact that he knew what this man was doing was wrong.”

Cameron told the man to leave the store, and he did just that. Cameron wasn’t afraid of this man, even though he was older and bigger than him.

“I’m very proud of him, but it’s totally within his character,” his mom said. “He’s not afraid to do what’s right.”

The store manager handed over surveillance footage to the police department. Cameron wasn’t afraid to stand up for what is right, and we are so glad that when he saw something, he did something.

Thank you, Cameron, for taking action!
