Stanford Graduate Students Peter Jonsson and Carl Fredrik Arndt: Heroes

In March 2016 Brock Turner was convicted of three felony sex abuse charges. He had assaulted an unconscious woman on the campus of Stanford University in Stanford, California. Two heroes intervened to help the unconscious woman: Stanford graduate students Peter Jonsson and Carl Fredrik Arndt. “I can’t understate how important those two heroes were in this case,” Santa Clara County Deputy District Attorney Alaleh Kianerci said. If they had not intervened, it is very unlikely that no arrest would have been made. Ms. Kianerci said, “Those two heroes made this case a prosecutable one.” Just before 1 a.m. on 18 January 2015, Mr. Jonsson and Mr. Arndt were riding their bikes. Mr. Jonsson saw movement by a dumpster, and he saw a man on top of a woman. He noticed that the woman was not moving. He told police later, “Something seemed weird.” Mr. Jonsson and Mr. Arndt yelled, “Hey,” to the male — Brock Turner — who started running. Mr. Jonsson ran after Brock Turner and caught him. Mr. Jonsson and Mr. Arndt held Brock Turner on the ground until police arrived. While talking to police officers, Mr. Jonsson cried several times. The police report stated, “He said it was a very disturbing event for him to witness and be involved in, but he just reacted to the situation at hand without really thinking.” In court, the woman read a statement, in which she thanked “the two men who saved me, who I have yet to meet.” She added, “I sleep with two bicycles that I drew taped above my bed to remind myself there are heroes in this story. That we are looking out for one another. To have known all of these people, to have felt their protection and love, is something I will never forget.”
