EAGLE POINT, Ore. An alleged bike thief was stopped in his tracks at a Walmart in Southern Oregon thanks to a man... on a horse... with a lasso.

The incident took place in a Walmart parking lot in Eagle Point, a small town about 12 miles Northeast of Medford.

Witnesses say the suspect was caught trying to steal a bike off the rack outside the store.

Since being lassoed to the ground, the suspect has been arrested and identified as 23-year-old Victorino Sanchez.
