GO Transit constables honoured for taking down armed robbery suspect
When three GO Transit special constables started their shift Aug. 5, they had no idea they would be forced to intervene in an armed robbery and ultimately be honoured for their bravery.
Stephan Fahel, 37, Brent Strachan, 32, and Arjun Kapadiya, 25, were recognized Friday at a Metrolinx board meeting for their "heroic" actions.
"It's always nice to be called a hero, but... we're all heroes because the people I work with would have done exactly the same thing," said Fahel. "It's definitely nice to hear it, and it's definitely nice to be appreciated for it, there's no doubt about it.
We help people every day and we just do it because it's what we love to do," he said.
