Mark Richard Bradley saved Catherine M. O’Connor from assault, Braintree, Massachusetts, August 28, 2003. O’Connor, 43, was stopped in her car in traffic on a highway off-ramp when two men approached her vehicle. One man opened the rear door of her car, got into the back seat, and pointed a handgun at her, and the second entered the front seat. O’Connor shouted for help. In his pickup truck on the ramp behind O’Connor’s vehicle, Bradley, 31, court officer, saw the situation develop. He shouted at the assailants as he approached in his truck, then he moved the vehicle forward and intentionally struck the front driver’s side of O’Connor’s car to push it into the guide rail and block it there. The assailants exited the car and fled the scene. They were apprehended several days later. Bradley sustained a laceration to his leg; he recovered.
