Englander Honors Local Hero and His Horse

This week, I was proud to join Los Angeles Police Department Devonshire Division’s Captain Brian Pratt to honor Nester Zepeda, a local hero on horseback.
On Friday, March 25, Nester was riding his horse, Palomino, to the bank and to run errands around town. While enjoying a day with his horse, he witnessed a purse snatching at the Northridge Fashion Center and saw the suspect running from the location. Nester chased after the suspect on horseback causing the suspect to abandon the purse. The stolen property was safely retrieved and returned to its rightful owner.
The 23 year old local Reseda resident, lives down the street from the Northridge Fashion Center and attended Cleveland High School. I want to commend Nester and his horse Palomino for their bravery and selfless service to our community. His quick action and intervention in the purse snatching incident show the courage and activism that makes our community stand out among others.
