ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC)— News10NBC is celebrating another winner of the “Do the Right Thing” award,  meet  Ruby Leport, a second-grader at School 52 in Rochester.

Her mom nominated her.

Ruby saw a crime happening last September after school. She told her mom there was a man hitting her counselor's car tire with something sharp, she gave a description and they called 911.

Police found the man carrying a knife and arrested him. Because of Ruby, no one was hurt, and no more damage was done.

Great work, Ruby!
