St. Paul police officer Jeff Schwab had just arrived home Nov. 18 when a call came in about a violent offender who had kidnapped a woman and was on the move.

For the next several hours Schwab worked relentlessly with the Ramsey County sheriff's apprehension unit to capture Samuel Jay McGown, who had kidnapped his girlfriend. McGown is a sex offender with a history of domestic assault.

Sheriff Matt Bostrom on Monday presented Schwab with the first-ever Sheriff's Office Award for Excellence.
