Carl-Fredrick Arndt and Peter Jonsson are the two Swedish-born graduate students at Stanford University who infamously spotted Brock Turner as he was sexually assaulting an unconscious woman behind a dumpster at one of the school's frat parties last year and held him until police arrived.
Turner, of course, was sentenced to a ridiculously light six-month prison term after being convicted of the horrifying deed — a sentence which sent shockwaves throughout the country and anger towards the judge responsible for not handing out a harsher penalty.

The two men — whom the victim refers to as 'heroes' in her moving statement that has since gone viral — were interviewed by Swedish newspaper Expressen and gave their reaction to the entire incident on Tuesday.
Arndt said (translated from Swedish, below) that the two came upon the scene while riding their bicycles home late that night:
