4 yr old Power Ranger saves family

A 4-year-old North Carolina boy wearing a Power Rangers costume and plastic sword upset two stick-up men so much they left his mom's Durham apartment.

At the time, one of the men was holding a gun to the head of Stevie Long's 5-year-old sister, Mary, the Raleigh News & Observer reported. Stevie, 4, swept into the room brandishing his plastic sword and yelling, "Yah, yah."

"Get away from my family," he ordered.

The gunmen took off with credit cards, money and jewelry belonging to Stevie's mother, Jennifer Long.

"It tripped him out, and that's when they moved on," said Bernie Evans, Stevie's uncle, who lives in the apartment upstairs.

The home invasion began when the two men approached Long's boyfriend and his son outside. They pulled out guns and forced the two to let them into Long's apartment.
