The Irregulars Salute Katie Ruiz



When a gang of armed men burst into Katie Ruiz's home this week, the 12-year-old New Yorker knew just what to do. As the vicious thieves ransacked her house and terrorized her family, she managed to stay calm and think quickly.

Katie told police that she had been doing her math homework when she saw a man with a gun run past her bedroom door. According to Newsday, the men had followed her mother home from work and forced her at gunpoint to let them inside. Katie grabbed her new cell phone and ducked into a closet. She dialed 911, and within minutes the police were outside the building. All four thieves were captured as they tried to escape. They've since been charged with a long list of crimes.

Katie Ruiz, you're invited to join the Irregulars!
