Are You Sure You Want To Abduct THIS Kid?
One can imagine the would-be abductors talking beforehand: "Hey, how about that kid?" "Sure, why not?" Here's why not: Not only was he on his way home boxing training, but the kid is "the two-time Australian junior champion and two-time Queensland champion." As reported in The Cairns Post:
It seemed innocent enough - three people in a mini-van asking for directions at a well-lit intersection at 8pm on Wednesday in the quiet rural community of Yungaburra.
"It seems so innocent," 15-year-old Jackson said yesterday. "They stopped and asked for directions and I walked up to the campervan to help. The sliding door opened fast and I spun around to see what was happening.Here it comes ...
"Then this bloke grabbed me by the collar and tried to drag me into the van. He was really trying to drag me in but I pulled back with all my weight and then I hit him in the left ear."Bam!
It only took one punch from the two-time Australian junior champion and two-time Queensland champion to send the alleged abductors fleeing up Maple St from the scene.Nice. Here's the source, including a photo of the pugilist.
