Cowboy lassos bike thief in Oregon

After a shopping trip to Walmart for some dog food, Robert Borba, 28, heard a woman screaming.

“Stop him! Stop him! He stole my bike! He stole my bike!” The cowboy from Oregon recalled the situation to CBS News. “And I kind of look around and all of a sudden this guy goes whizzing by me on a bicycle.”

Without a way to catch the culprit on foot, Borba, who hails from Eagle Point, Ore., did what cowboys do. He jumped on his horse, armed with a lasso, and saved the day.

“A couple of swings and then I threw it at him, just like I would a steer,” Robert said.
