A group of irate men have tackled a would-be robber to the ground and forced him to apologise on camera for his actions.
‘Alright Townsville, this is what happens to little b**ch a** boys that want to try and break into houses and f*ck with our sh*t,’ Townsville man Tyson John says in the video as two other men hold down the alleged thief.
‘You got anything to say to the rest of Townsville, mate?’ asks the man, to which he reluctantly replies: ‘Drugs are bad and don’t break into houses.’

After making him repeat himself twice, the man is satisfied, and allows police officers to swarm and arrest the man pinned to the grass.
The man continues to film as the suspected robber is handcuffed while lying face-down on the ground in only his underwear. A cricket bat was also lying on the ground next to the suspect.
‘In his jocks too, what a shame,’ the videographer added. ‘In his jocks! They look they haven’t been washed in ages.’
After congratulating and thanking the police, some bystanders and his friends, he decides that it’s time for a beer and calls out ‘bye Felicia’ as the police car departs.

The entire incident was captured on video by Tyson John, who uploaded it to Facebook on Sunday morning to ‘raise awareness’.
He has been liberally praised by commenters, with one suggesting that more people take action against lawbreakers and ‘clean the streets of scum’ like the alleged thief in the footage.
‘F*cking legends, boys. Keep it up…good stuff,’ wrote one person, as another added,’ ‘Good work Tyson, This is GOLD.’
It’s the latest citizen’s arrest in Townsville after an alleged jewel thief was stopped by a man at CastleTown Shopping Centre on January 14.
