A man was prevented from stealing a bicycle at an Oregon Walmart, but it wasn’t the crime or location that had people talking — it was the Texas-style manner in which he was apprehended.
A horse-riding cowboy lassoed the thief with his lariat, local ABC affiliate KDRV Newswatch 12 reported.
A woman shouting that her bicycle was being stolen in front of the Eagle Point Walmart was all it took for the cowboy to unload his horse from the trailer and spring into action.
He soon caught up with the bike-nabbing thief, lassoed him and dragged him back toward the store.
When police arrived, they arrested the man, identified as Victorino Arellano-Sanchez, 22, and took him to the Jackson County Jail.
As for the cowboy, one officer thought immediately of the Lone Ranger. But he turned out to be Robert Borba, who keeps busy raising cattle and his children.
Everyone is calling him a hero now — everyone but Borba.
“I don’t know about hero,” the told the station. “I just feel that I did the right thing. I think if everyone did the right thing we wouldn’t have all the chaos that we do.”
