The alleged attempted burglary happened at around 4am on Monday morning when officers responded to reports a man had been seen hanging from balconies in the area.

Officers claimed the man was using force to wrench a window open while suspended on a balcony with oblivious inhabitants indoors.

Upon realising the police were watching his every move the suspect allegedly swung down from his balcony to the ground floor and ran in a desperate attempt to escape but was promptly caught by police officers.

Police arrested the man for attempted robbery by force and later found out the detainee holds a long list of previous offences on his criminal record.

The attempted burglar will now appear in court.
