As we reflect on the celebration of today; Thanksgiving, I want to showcase my amazing Branch Manager Frank! On his lunch break a few months ago he and his girlfriend were assaulted by a crazed man who appeared to be on an uncontrolled substance! They had a rock thrown through their windshield of their brand new car, they were shocked of this spontaneous, uncalled for actions. Frank and Kim reacted by calling 911 immediately and the police were dispatched to their location. Frank and Kim continued to follow the criminal while he was on foot in hopes to assist the officers in the pursuit. When the officer arrived the man was so crazed he attacked the one officer; while he was awaiting backup. As Frank and Kim sat in their vehicle watching the interaction, Frank quickly realized the officer was losing the struggle and the deranged man had captured his weapon during the tackle on the ground. While the officer attempted to detain the deranged man, during this interaction the officer lost his fight and the man capture his gun. Frank reacted; as an unarmed Good Samaritan and assisted with tackling and detaining the assailant while back up finally arrived to the scene. Frank saved not only the criminals life; more importantly, the officers life. Frank tossed the gun far away from the assailant and held the assailant down while they handcuffed him with the help of two other officers. Frank ensured the criminal could not harm the officer or the Good Samaritan, himself. I honor his heroism and I am thankful for everyone's safety! Thank you Frank for your unselfishness and willingness to assist in a time of panic! In his honor; Oxnard Police Department awarded him a couple weeks later with an in person meeting at the City of Oxnard Police Department! They personally honored his heroism with a trophy to recognize his actions and unselfishness.
