Guy on a Horse Lassoes Bike Thief Outside Walmart: Reports (CBS Newspath)

An attempted bike thief was thwarted by a man, a rope, and a trusty steed.

The incident, which was caught on camera by a witness, began when a 23-year-old alleged thief attempted to take a bike from a Walmart parking lot, police in Oregon say.

That's when Robert Borba got involved.

According to KTVL, Borba saw the attempted theft and chased after him while riding his horse.

While the suspect fled, Borba did what any self-respecting cowboy would: he lassoed the suspect.

Borba reportedly then held down the suspect until police arrived.

But as the suspect was hauled off to jail, Borba was more interested in his gear than he was being hailed as a hero.

"Can I have my rope back? I've gotta go," he asked police.
