Two Men Who Did the Right Thing

JS Online: Milwaukee paramedics foil robbery on east side They saw a woman being beaten and robbed and went to her aide, capturing the bad guy in the process.
Oberg pulled to a stop in the 2100 block of N. Farwell Ave., jumped from the red paramedic truck and rushed toward the robber, yelling at him. The suspect let go of the woman and tried to run away. Within 100 feet, Oberg caught him.
They wrestled a gun away from the guy - it later proved to be a replica - and one hit him on the head with his radio. The goblin is in police custody.

Milwaukee Firefighters William Echevarria and Jason Oberg - two heroes.
