The world became outraged when Stanford swimmer Brock Turner received a light six-month jail sentence last week for the sexual assault on an unconscious woman in January 2015. The victim penned a powerful letter regarding the attack, while Turner’s father authored an awful one.
On Wednesday, a hero in the story – one of the Swedes that stopped the assault – spoke out.
Carl-Fredrik Arndt and his friend Lars Peter Jonsson confronted Turner when they saw the woman wasn’t moving. Then, they chased down the attacker when he attempted to flee.
“She was unconscious. The entire time. I checked her and she didn’t move at all,” Arndt told CBS News in his first interview. “The guy stood up then we saw she wasn’t moving still. So we called him out on it. And the guy ran away, my friend Peter chased after him.”
