STUDIO CITY, Calif.–Police arrested a man who was detained by actor Taye Diggs after allegedly trying to burglarize the actor’s Studio City home, authorities said today.
Officers sent to the actor’s neighborhood about 11:20 p.m. Sunday arrested Hassan Juma, 20, and booked him on suspicion of burglary, said Richard French of the Los Angeles Police Department.
The “Private Practice” star told officers that he “found the guy inside his garage looking for things to take,” and that he chased the suspect after he ran off and held him for police, French said.
No injuries were reported, French said.
Diggs had attended the Screen Actors Guild Awards earlier in the evening.
