The 2013 “Hero of the Year” award went to three employees of Liberty Safes in West Sacramento — Douglas Foster, Shawn McMahon and Andrew Wing — who on Oct. 27, 2012, chased and cornered a man who robbed an 86-year-old woman of her purse outside their business. Foster and his family were greeted by Aloha, a comfort dog for the Yolo County District Attorney’s Office, at Monday’s crime victim tribute in Woodland.
