Cameron Cook and his mom, Heather, went to the Target outside of Boston in November of 2016.
Cameron was out and about on a typical shopping trip when he noticed something peculiar.
Cameron, a 17-year-old shopper, saw a man who seemed strange as he was browsing the store.
Cameron kept staring at the stranger because he saw a “demonic look” in his eyes.
The young man’s attention was immediately drawn to a young girl whose mother was using the restroom.
The longer he watched, the more he realized that the dad did not know the child.
When Cameron and Heather got close enough to him, they could smell the alcohol on his breath as they saw a big, burly man start to “g**b” himself.
Heather recommended they continue on, but her courageous adolescent son was not about to leave.
He went with his gut and realized something terrible had happened.
The girl’s bewilderment was clear as the man pressed against her seconds later.
Cameron did not think twice before throwing himself in front of the man and in between him and the girl.
He didn’t flinch, and what he did next is heroic.
