14-Year-Old Boy Who Protected CMU Rape Victim And His Family Is a True Hero

morning sun

This a story that isn’t being talked about that much. It’s about unbelievable heroism that was involved in the CMU abduction and sexual assault case last week. Meet the 14-year-old boy who saved the day.

Alone inside that Lincoln Township home were a 14-year-old boy and his 11-year-old sister and 2-year-old brother. Their dad had stepped out and would be back shortly. Acelin, 11-years-old, was playing with her 2-year-old brother Angus Persyn. James Persyn III, 14-years-old was in his bedroom with the TV cranked loud to drown out the noise of his younger siblings in the other room.

Their father, James Persyn Jr., 36, had left to pick up his fiancée, Tiffany Ramon, 28. Suddenly, the children heard frantic banging on their front door and a woman’s panicked screams. the teenager unlocked the door. The woman charged in, ran to the kitchen and hid. James locked the front door and ran to the side door to lock it, too. He herded everyone into the bathroom to hide. The injured woman got in the bathtub and cowered. Acelin and Angus joined her. James went to his bedroom and grabbed the one weapon he has — a hunting knife. He pulled his Labrador retriever by the collar into the bathroom and closed the door, which has no lock. James turned the lights off.

You most likely have heard the rest of the story. I would say this is one of the most brave 14-year-old boys I’ve heard about in quite some time. He is a true hero.
