An NFL player is being hailed as a hero after he reportedly helped to save an elderly woman who was being sexually assaulted in a park.
Justin Herron, a 6’5 offensive lineman for the New England Patriots reportedly pulled a 30-year-old man off the woman and pinned him down until law enforcement arrived.
As KMOV4 reports:
“You see it in movies and TV all the time, but you never think it’s going to happen in real life until it does. In that moment, I was in shock,” Justin Herron said during a press conference Wednesday with Murry Rogers, another bystander credited with stopping the attack. The two were presented with Outstanding Service Awards by the Tempe Police Department.
A 30-year-old man was attempting to sexually assault a 71-year-old woman in a public park, according to police, when Herron and Rogers heard screams for help. Herron, a 6’5″ offensive lineman who just completed his rookie season with the New England Patriots, said he was taking a walk when he heard the attack.

“I just knew in that moment that I had to go,” said Herron, who ordered the man to stop and pulled him off the woman.
“I try not to be too aggressive with individuals, knowing that I could potentially hurt somebody,” Herron said. The suspect complied and remained stationary as police were en route.

To you Justin Herron a big thanks for helping that elderly woman, we need more heroes like yourself, SIR! Thank you again for your response and being a man of principal like yourself, God Bless You!
Justin you are the face of a true American! You handled yourself very well and most likely saved a life!
Thank you for being there & stopping this! You’re awesome
God will bless you for your bravery and good heart. What you did was being a true and genuine American, contrary to what is happening in Congress.
Under today’s society they will probably charge him will unlawful confinement, and he will be sued for injuries the man recieved. That is the new world we all live in now with the woke culture and the push to control every aspect of our lives by the left.
Sir you are a good citizen and would be proud to know you.
God love you for what you did to save that women. There are more good people in this country than bad & he is one of the good guys.
This is what professional athletes should strive to emulate, not the Bully thuggish mentality. This is the sign of a real man.
Thank you. You are for sure a Hero. I’m elderly and would love to have you around if that ever happened to me. Go Pats Go.
Thank you for your deed. Be advised, the left isn’t going to like what you did.
What a good decent human being! And you can see it in his face God bless you and look after that Lady How awful to be attacked like that
