SPOKANE, Wash. - Joshua Gahl, the maintenance director at the Maplewood Garden Apartments heard the screams of an assault victim after she had been running on the Centennial Trail Thursday afternoon. He ran to her aid.
The victim told Gahl a man fitting Avondre Graham's description assaulted her. That's when Gahl allegedly saw Graham and chased him down. Gahl ran after him until Graham ran in to the river. Gahl says Avondre Graham was struggling in the water and crying for help. Gahl saw Graham was close to the bank and let him swim on to shore.
Gahl says he continued to chase Graham after he crossed the river that's when police caught up with Avondre Graham and arrested him. Gahl says he's not a hero just doing what he thought was the right thing.
