Police: Burglary victim helps officers catch suspect

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

New Orleans Police say a burglary victim helped catch the man who allegedly stole from him.

Police say the victim told them he and his friends were walking towards his vehicle in the 1500 block of Canal Street around 5:30 a.m. on Sunday. He says when they got close to the vehicle, which was parked in a commercial lot, he noticed someone was inside it. 

The victim told police the suspect got out of the vehicle and tried to jump over a metal gate, dropping the victim's headphones and car charger onto the ground. Police say the victim managed to pull the suspect off of the gate and onto the ground. He kept him there until police arrived.

Officers arrested 41 year-old Carlos Manzano. He was taken to central lock up and booked with auto burglary and possession of stolen things.
