Babysitter Blames Black Guy Next Door For Robbery And 4-Year-Old Saves The Day

By  | 

4 Year Old Solves Robbery A 17-year-old babysitter in Washington State called 911 to report a burglary where she was watching two young children. She described the suspects as two black males, dressed in dark clothing, both 20 to 30 years old and very tall. She also stated that one had a knife and the other appeared to have a firearm which she saw partially protruding from one of the backpacks. Because the 911 call described the suspects as being armed,  numerous deputies, SWAT team members, and even a Customs and Border Protection Helicopter showed up to apprehend the suspects.

The babysitter told police that the home’s neighbor, 25-year-old Cody Oakes, fit the suspects’ description. Oakes was led out of his home as a sniper watched nearby and handcuffed. All this went down and when Abby, a four-year-old under the care of the babysitter, spoke up to detectives. From

Abby told investigators the suspects had white skin, not black, and that’s when the babysitter’s story started to crumble — and she confessed.

Abby’s mother said she is proud of her young daughter.

“Literally in 30 seconds, she changed everything that had been going on for five, six hours,” her mother said.

As for the stolen belongings, Abbys said “they got it back because of me being the superhero.”

In addition to the suspects not being some random, armed black dudes, one of the white males apprehended was the babysitter’s 16-year-old boyfriend, and they also found a list of items the babysitter wanted stolen, including Abby’s piggy bank and video game systems:

Abby is basically the best. I also love how judgy she is about the babysitter. She is NOT a good babysitter.

This story makes me so happy my kids are at the age where I can make my teenager watch his younger siblings, because I know the worst thing he will do is leave a mess in the kitchen. I can’t imagine trusting the care of your kids to some teenager who would rob you and make up a story about black men being the culprits and take your own kids piggy bank. I’m so glad Abby solved this crime. We always see kids being made famous on YouTube for doing basically nothing, but I would love to see Abby star in her own TV show where she helps other little kids solve crimes!

    Good for that little girl.
    Man, I really hope that babysitter has a hurricane of shit come down on her for this.

      That poor neighbor must have been terrified. I really, really hope the police get on this chick for making a false accusation and wasting all of those police resources.

      Well, she should be charged as an accomplice to robbery, as well as conspiracy to commit robbery and making a false report. Plus the neighbor could have a civil suit.

      Yea shouldn’t be too tough proving she’s an accomplice if they have her handwritten list of things to grab. I hope they throw the book at all of them.
      Plus, how awkward for the families that are neighbors! “Hey, sorry my babysitter falsely accused you of robbing us and had the police kick in your door.

      True. But I would hope I would be able to try to “laugh” it off as much as one can.

      What a truly horrible person. Not only did she blame the mythical “black guy” she then went so far as to accuse an actual person. This man’s life could have been really messed up, not to mention over if things went really bad. It just takes one wrong move for shooting to start. Awful.

      I know. Poor guy probably had officers storm his house and then he’s cuffed and led out of his house with a sniper tracking him. It’s the stuff of nightmares. I’d be sending all my therapy bills to that babysitter and her parents. Along with the dry cleaning bills after I peed my pants.

      If she were younger or unable to communicate for some reason…this would have been really bad. What an asshat!!!

    would’ve gotten away with it if it weren’t for that meddling kid…
    “What are you in for?”
    “Stealing a 4 year-old girl’s piggy-bank.”

    I can see how that would go over well in the joint.

    The tv series should feature Cody Oakes as well. They both team up and become crime consultants (Abby gets her own Diane von Furstenburg Google Glasses).

      And her video games! What the hell? That’s just mean.

      This chick is a complete moron as well if she thinks a 4-year-old doesn’t know the difference between black and white. Why would they let the kid see them and then claim it was a black guy?

    • Alex Lee

      The babysitter was probably hoping the 4 year-old would be to afraid to even speak to the police. Also hoping nobody would believe a 4 year-old anyway.

      Kids grow up so fast these days.

    What an awesome little kid! Probably some awesome parents, too.

    That’s awesome. But just because the babysitter did that doesn’t mean all teens are like that. I babysat kids at 17 and I did a good job. I had plenty of friends who did as well.

      Of course you’re right and I’m sure no one here really condemns all teenagers because of the actions of this girl. Honestly, she sounds like she has no conscience at all. If I was the parents, I would feel terrible that I left my kids in the care of such a heartless person.

    I wonder…because I starting babysitting at 13. My first job was for a family with two kids. One was probably about 15 months and the other was somewhere around 3. I was a good babysitter and a responsible teen (my mom says I was born 45). But, even so, I just cannot imagine letting a 13 year old watch my daughter now. This story isn’t doing me any favors in that department. Geesh.

    how horrible for the neighbor! I’m glad Abby spoke up.

    She put the piggy bank on the list? What the actual fuck? I didn’t think she could get any more despicable than being a racist asshole, but apparently, there’s absolutely no line this kid won’t cross.

    A lot of balls to call the police, a lot more balls to accuse a black guy, and tons of balls to try to call out the neighbor. Where does she get the balls? To this day I’m still scared to call 911 unless someone is literally dying because I’m worried about wasting resources and being a giant pile of douche. I hope girly gets in big big trouble for false accusations and has to pay back all the resources she used.

    It’s one (incredibly bad) thing to fake a robery while babysitting a kid who will be scared to steal yourself and then lie about the supposed robbers in an attempt to get away with it. Telling the police that they have guns to get a swat team and actually naming an innocent person as the thief is just twisted icing on the the evil cake. I wonder if she had a problem with the chap specifically or was racist as well as well as all the other nastiness.

    And people say racism is dead…yeah, blame the black guy living next door.

    Good for this little girl! She rocks all the socks!
