Sergeant Sergeant Fernando Robles suffered a fatal heart attack shortly after breaking up a fight between two men in the parking lot of a local mall.

Sergeant Robles identified himself as a police officer and told the men to stop fighting. The men continued fighting and Sergeant Robles and a bystander physically separated the two and held them down. Sergeant Robles suffered a fatal heart attack moments later. He was taken to a local hospital where he died three days later.

Sergeant Robles was survived by his wife and son.
