A Georgia man acted heroically when he heard a child in distress and rushed to help, holding a suspicious adult at gunpoint until police arrived on the scene.

Kelcey Willis stopped for an oil change at a Walmart in Warner Robins, Georgia, on November 6 when she witnessed what appeared to be a kidnapping. Following a gut instinct, she followed the boy’s screams into the woods and intervened in what police say was an assault.

“While a friend was informing us to change the oil, we heard a child scream. So we turned to the corner and saw him being taken out of the car and the man was leading him behind the building.” Wilis told local news station WGXA. “We thought he was using the bathroom, but it took him too long to get back from behind the building.”

With his suspicions raised, Willis decided to take action as the boy kept screaming.

“I heard the kid yell, please don’t hit me, so that’s when my gut kicked in a little bit more, so I sped up to go get that kid,” Kelcey Willis said.

“The screaming was getting louder and it just didn’t sit well with us. My first instinct was to grab my gun and go find that kid in the woods,” Willis said.

Following the boy’s anguished cries into the woods, he soon realized that the situation was dangerous.

"The screaming just kept getting louder and louder, and that didn't sit well with us.  My first instinct was to grab my gun and go find that boy in the woods," Willis said.

The Warner Robins Police Department said in a news release that a suspect, identified as 67-year-old Haimnarine Doobay, forcibly removed the girl from a vehicle and drove her into the woods behind the Walmart. Police say Doobay threw the boy to the ground and began to choke him.

“By the time I turned the corner, he was on top of him, choking him, choking him, at which point I raised my gun and pointed it at him and grabbed the kid,” Willis said.

Willis told WGXA that the incident could have ended badly if he hadn’t followed his gut.

“If I don’t intervene, and I don’t react as quickly as I did, the boy would probably be dead… He would have suffocated the boy. Once we got the boy out of the woods, he said the man was going to beat him up and leave him with animals,” Willis said.
