Girl kicks intruder where it hurts most 女童踢中入侵者的要害

A hapless burglar came off second-best after he was caught red-handed by a home-alone 12-year-old girl - who promptly kicked him in the groin.
Brave Georgia Bulis-Gray went to investigate after she heard a door slam in her parents’ kitchen and found herself confronting a hooded intruder.
The schoolgirl, who said she didn’t want the smirking man to think she was helpless, kicked him hard, forcing him to flee in agony from the house in Bosham, West Sussex.
Georgia then called the police and even had the presence of mind to do a quick sketch of the man she had just seen.
Georgia, a second year pupil at Chichester High School, West Sussex, said: "He just smiled at me and I thought, ’I do not want him thinking I am just a helpless little girl’."
