A 42-year-old man walked into a Capp Street bedroom he shares with his brother at 1:30 a.m. on Wednesday and caught a man holding his brother’s backpack, according to police.
The backpack contained a laptop and the suspect tried to flee with it. Youth, it appears, prevailed.
The 42-year-old grabbed the 53-year-old suspect and held onto him. Other roommates helped and kept the suspect at the Capp Street apartment between 17th and 18th streets until the police arrived to make an arrest.
No names have been released.
