A four-year-old girl went full Sherlock Holmes after her babysitter orchestrated a burglary of her home. This girl, Abby, was at home when burglars suddenly showed up to the door, ABC News reports.

“Wednesday was the worst day of my life,” Abby said.

Two men showed up to the door and demanded the babysitter, Abby and two other children leave the house.

But something nefarious was afoot. The babysitter, whose name has not been released because she is a minor, was actually colluding with the burglars – her 16-year-old boyfriend and 18-year-old Ruben J. Benjamin.

But Abby knew something was amiss.

“I thinked about, that was really her being bad,” Abby said. “She’s not a good babysitter.”

The babysitter told police the assailants were black and looked like a neighbor. Police eventually cuffed Cody Oaks and questioned him for several hours before Abby told police the burglars were white.

Eventually, the babysitter confessed. Abby ended up getting all of her stuff back, including an Xbox, iPod an Nintendo Wii.

“They got it back because of me being a superhero,” she said.
