Someone get this little girl a gold medal.

A 4-year-old Ferndale, Washington child helped solve a crime after her babysitter staged a burglary at her home. The sitter, who called 911 to report the bogus crime, told police that two black men armed with a gun and a knife barged into the home while she was watching three children on Wednesday.

But little Abby wasn’t having it. When officers questioned the youngster, she made sure to tell them that the “robbers” weren’t black at all.

“She described the suspects as having peach-colored skin as opposed to having dark-colored skin,” Sheriff Bill Elfo told ABC News.

The 17-year-old sitter, who is not being named because she is a minor, carried out the burglary with her 16-year-old boyfriend and 18-year-old Ruben Benjamin. Worst of all, the sitter pinned the robbery on a black neighbor, who was taken in for questioning. The crew stole a video game system, laptops, and Abby’s iPod and piggy bank.

For Abby, that Wednesday was the “worst day” of her life.

“That was really her being bad,” she said. “She’s not a good babysitter.”

Police say the suspect admitted to the crime. She and her alleged accomplices were all arrested. The babysitter now faces charges of second-degree perjury, conspiring to commit robbery, and conspiring to commit burglary. The two other suspects were both charged with second-degree robbery, theft, and burglary.

And about Abby’s stolen piggy bank?

“[Police] got it back because of me being the superhero,” she said.

You go, girl! Watch her adorable account of the incident above.
