(CNS): A homeowner who came home Friday to find his house in West Bay had been burgled found a man that he believed to be the culprit in the bushes near his home and tackled him. Police said that during the scuffle the alleged burglar made his escape, but after his arrest a short time later he was taken to hospital and treated for injuries he had received during the confrontation with the victim of the break-in. The homeowner had returned to his house on Batabano Road at about 2:30pm when he saw his property had been burgled. When the police arrived at the scene shortly after the scuffle, they arrested the 39-year-old West Bay man nearby.

After he was treated for the injuries he received during the fight with the homeowner, he was detained at George Town Police Station. The male homeowner also sustained minor injuries but he did not require hospital treatment. Meanwhile, the suspect was charged with burglary and common assault and was expected to appear in court Tuesday.
