Deputy Roger Randolph Lang – wow
Here is the story of Orange County Sheriff’s Deputy, Roger Lang & his friend Theophilu (cool story by the way):
Roger Randolph Lang and Theophilus I. Joseph rescued a woman from assault, Norco, California, April 4, 2009. A 31-year-old woman was alone inside the tanning salon she operated when a man entered and, threatening her with a knife, forced her to the floor in a back room. She screamed, attracting the attention of Lang, 47, tax preparer, who was in an office of an adjoining business with a client, Joseph, 41, off-duty police officer. Lang ran into the salon and to its back room, where he saw the assault. He grasped the assailant, who then turned on him. The men struggled for control of the weapon, Lang sustaining multiple knife wounds. Joseph also responded from the office, and he joined in the struggle. He ended up on the floor, the assailant atop him, as he too fought for control of the knife. The men disarmed the assailant, who then broke away and fled the building. Joseph pursued him through the parking lot, tackled him, and held him until police arrived and arrested him. The woman was not injured. Lang was taken to the hospital, where he was treated for an abrasion to his forehead and lacerations that required suturing.
Seems like a pretty obvious hero to me!
