Bendigo man makes citizen's arrest

BENDIGO police are praising the good work of a man who made a citizen's arrest this morning. 

Sergeant Robert Walsh said the east Bendigo resident discovered two men in his shed about 4.30am. 

"One was arrested by the victim," Sergeant Walsh said. "It was really good work." 

Sergeant Walsh said the man had heard the alleged offenders -- an 18-year-old male and a 30-year-old man -- and decided to investigate. 

"One was trying to remove a push bike from his shed," Sergeant Walsh said. 

It is believed the property owner managed to grab hold of one of the alleged offenders and then waited for police to arrive.
