Boy, 12, kills man who attacked his mom

Wed Apr 2, 12:40 PM ET

A 12-year-old boy fatally slashed a man who was attacking his mother at the boarding house where they lived, authorities said.

Salomon Noubissie, 64, died at a hospital after he was slashed across the neck Monday night in the home in the Landover area.

Cpl. Diane Richardson, a spokeswoman for Prince George’s County police, said Wednesday that authorities hadn’t decided whether the boy would be charged with anything. They were reviewing the case with the state’s attorney’s office.

The boy said he had been playing a video game Monday night when he heard his mother, Cheryl Stamp, scream. He found her on the kitchen floor, straddled by a fellow resident who was choking her.

“I kept saying, ‘Stop! Stop! Stop!’” the boy told The Washington Post, which published his account without giving his name. “But he just ignored me. He didn’t stop. He just kept hurting her.”

The boy said he took a knife and swung at the man. Police say they found Noubissie with a knife wound to the upper body.

Stamp said she didn’t fully realize at first what her son had done. “He didn’t say anything,” she said. "But I knew when I looked in his eyes. I said, ‘Oh, Lord.’ "

Rarely is a 12-year-old implicated in a homicide, and even less often does a child that age kill someone to protect his mother.

“In Maryland, there can be a legitimate defense of third parties in the event of a violent attack,” State’s Attorney Glenn F. Ivey told the newspaper. “That is a possibility in this case.”

Stamp said she and Noubissie, a Cameroonian immigrant, had moved into the boarding house within days of each other three months ago and had become friends. Stamp said Noubissie had told her he was studying to be a psychiatrist.

But on Monday night, she said, he was acting differently. He started to yell at her and grab her hair.

“He threw me down and started choking me. I think that’s when my son came in. … He protected me,” she said.

Noubissie was combative with officers when they arrived, even as he was bleeding heavily, she said.

The boy said he was not happy with what happened but felt he had no choice.

“I told God that I had stabbed him because he was killing my mother. I know he understands, and I think he will keep us safe now.”


Damn.

I can’t believe they’re even considering charges for this kid. He should get a medal or free college or something. Truly badass.

Fuckin’ a right man. If it went down that way, that’s cut and dry self defense.

Look, a T-boy!

Damn rights!

Back in the day didn’t people get citizens’ medals for bravery, selflessness, courage, etc. in US/Can? What ever happened to that tradition?

It’s like people are too afraid to be selfless anymore, lest they get sued or charged for a “crime”.

ElbowStrike

I hope the judge or jury dismisses the case.

They shouldn’t charge him, but they should keep an eye on him, psychologically speaking. It may hit him a little later what he did and have an adverse effect on him.

The kid did good.

Agreed.

If he were an adult he could be charged for NOT doing anything under good Samaritan laws. He is going to need some thorough counseling though.

Crab cakes and slashing up criminals…That’s what Maryland does!

That’s awesome, most kids probably wouldn’t think to grab a knife and do something themselves. Props to the 12 year old. It is absolutely ridiculous that charges are even being considered, how sad.

I give this kid mad props. He definitely did something great. I just hope he turns out okay psychologically. Like someone else said, he should go to counseling or go to check ups regularly.

Little kids these days. Plotting to kill teachers and saving defenseless mothers. What a world.

When this kid gets older, and he tells the ladies what he did for his mom, he’s gonna have no problem getting laid. lol

Obviously, the cops don’t want to charge him, but they can’t enforce the law by popular consensus. I am sure they are just making sure everything looks clean and official before they close they case.

The kid has probably already had more sex than I have. Not that that is really saying a whole lot…

That kid is a hero… seriously… he has mad guts

How can they charge this kid? He did the right thing.

I see you are from Cananda. We have this thing in the USA called “No Good Deed Goes Unpunished”. It allows you to sue other people because you spilt coffee on yourself, kill people as long as you do it wearing gloves that don’t fit, and have sex with big ugly bitches when you are the president, among other things. It’s grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrreat!

Wow so badass…
this kid will definitely get laid plenty!
and for sure he’s getting TONS of presents (supplements eventually?) on that anniversary and his bday for years!

I hope he finds T-Nation one day…
.unless of course we find him first…

this kid better take up training, after killing a guy! shit…on top of therapy he’s gonna have to let the animal run around from time to time!! clearly he has the instinct…
