    Charlotte teen foils burglary with pocketknife

    Charlotte, N.C. Fourteen-year-old Dante Gardin first hid in his closet from the burglars who broke into his Charlotte home .

    But when one of them kicked in his locked bedroom door Saturday morning, Gardin told The Charlotte Observer, he decided to act.

    Gardin said he cut the man on the stomach with a pocketknife he grabbed before he hid and the man dropped his gun.

    The teen said when he grabbed the gun, the thieves left without taking anything.

    Gardin said he called police, but officers could not find the green van he saw driving away.

    The teen said he was home alone while his mother and little brother ran errands.

    Even though he brought a knife to a possible gunfight he did a good job in turning the situation to his advantage.

    Yep sounds like taking a strong offensive attack in this situation paid off,the surprise attack probably saved him but I wouldn't recommend you expect the same outcome everytime

    The reaction must be quick and violent...it paid off for this young man.
