FERN RIDGE – Pennsylvania State Police presented Outstanding Citizenship Awards to Hericson Torres and Brandon Caron, both of Stroudsburg, for actions that likely saved the life of a woman under attack.

Last April, the two heard screams in the middle of the night.  Both left their house, located a woman under attack and subdued the attacker, Leo Gardner, who was later charged with attempted homicide.
