Thief Attempts To Take A Woman's Bike, But Then A Cowboy Rides Up On A Horse Like Out Of A Movie

A scene that truly appeared like it was taken right out of a Western occurred in a Walmart parking lot in Eagle Point, Oregon, 275 miles south of Portland. Robert Borba, a 28-year-old cowboy needed to pick up some dog food and headed to Walmart to get some just like many others in the community. However, his mode of transport was different. He rode his horse there. And, wow, did it sure come in handy.

After Borba picked up the dog food and was exiting the Walmart, he heard a desperate woman scream, "Stop him! Stop him! He stole my bike!" Next thing he knew, Victorino Arrellano-Sanchez sped past him on her bicycle. That's when his cowboying instincts took over. He hopped on his horse and galloped after the stunned criminal before lassoing him like he had done to so many steer.

The hero cowboy then called 911, and a hilarious exchange followed. "911. What's the address of the emergency?" "We got a guy who just stole a bike here at Walmart. I got him roped and tied to a tree." After a few beats, the incredulous 911 operator exclaimed, "What?" according to CBS.

A few minutes later, the police, also stunned by the scene, arrived and took care of the situation from there. When they were finished, they returned the rope to Borba, and he made his way out to the ranch that he works at with his dog food, now a national hero.

Have you ever seen or experienced something by yourself that could have been taken right out of a movie? Like to the point that you actually looked around, fully expecting to see cameras rolling?
