Florida State University’s police department is praising members of the school’s Kappa Alpha Psi chapter for some quick thinking and one heroic decision.

Police officials say a man grabbed a woman’s chest and demanded for her to leave with him. Before the alleged assault could escalate, some frat members chased him away.

The men, members of Kappa’s Theta Eta Chapter, gave a description of the suspect to campus police.

The incident occurred shortly after midnight Wednesday.

The suspect, 24-year-old Patrick Furman, was later apprehended by a plainclothes officer. Furman had just been released from prison three days earlier.

He was charged with kidnapping and aggravated assault, as well as misdemeanor battery charges according to WTXL’s Taylor Anderson.

FSU Police Chief David Perry heaped nothing but praise on the fraternity members:

With their help, and swift coordination with our uniformed and plainclothes officers, FSU stood united to stop this offender and ensure he was taken into custody. We want to say loudly and clearly that anyone who seeks to harm our students will be dealt with using every resource we have.
