The Tempe police honored Justin Herron, the football offensive tackle for the New England Patriots, and Tempe resident Murry Rogers for intervening and stopping an attack in Kiwanis Park on March 20.

Herron and Rogers detained Kevin Caballero until officers arrived, police said. Herron and Rogers intervened when Caballero shoved the victim to the ground and tried to attack her sexually.

"It was a crazy experience. Something that I never dreamed I thought I would see," Herron said. "You see it in movies and TV all the time, but you never think it would happen in real life until it does."

Herron said he was in shock at that moment. There was not a cloud to be seen, and the field was open, he said. The fact that it happened at that time was too shocking for him to comprehend.

During an offseason break from a rigorous regimen, Herron walked around the park to just get away from the elements. A sudden snap of his instincts kicked in when he heard the victim screaming.

At that moment, Herron said, he wished he could tell what he was thinking but that he just knew someone needed help. He said that all he could do was rush over and help the victim.

Because Herron did not intend to harm anyone, he didn't want to be aggressive. He mentioned having a loud voice, so he told the aggressor to stop, pulled him off, and made him sit until the police arrived.

He said his victim was highly traumatized and the two brave men saved her life.

Rogers, who had gone to the park to reserve a spot for his daughter's birthday party, said he helped detain the suspect while Herron was drawing the victim away from the scene.

Both men spoke with the victim recently after the incident. Herron and Rogers were called by the woman her angels. Meanwhile, despite what Herron did, he did not consider himself a hero.

During a news conference, Detective Natalie Barela said that they were honoring two good Samaritans who intervened during this vicious assault and held the suspect until officers arrived to arrest him.

Police Chief Jeff Glover noted that this vicious attack would've been more severe if it wasn't for Herron and Rogers. He said his victim was highly traumatized, and the two brave men saved her life.
