Jeffrey Mumford rescued Agatha Santangelo from assault, St. Louis, Missouri, April 16, 2002. After Ms. Santangelo, 38, a police officer, took a knife from a man whom she was attempting to question, the man turned on her. He punched her repeatedly, then took her to the pavement and attempted to remove her loaded pistol from its holster. At work in a building nearby, Mumford, 37, shipping and receiving clerk, heard screaming, then saw Ms. Santangelo being attacked. He ran to the scene, where he jumped on the assailant, released the assailant’s hold of Ms. Santangelo, and pulled him off her. Mumford pushed the assailant to the ground and secured him as Ms. Santangelo regained her bearings and handcuffed him. Ms. Santangelo required hospital treatment, then physical therapy, for multiple injuries inflicted by the assailant.
