Pretoria's Lynnwood Manor community rallied together to arrest three alleged housebreakers who made a dash for freedom after being caught red-handed in a house yesterday, said police.

Captain Colette Weilbach said a man surprised the three trying to break into his house at 2.30am.

"He fired one warning shot and the three suspects then fled," she said.

His neighbours closed off the area to hamper their escape, then started a search, finding and arresting the men. - Sapa
