Manhattan’s Top Criminal Lawyer

Is It Possible To Make A “Citizen’s Arrest” In NYC?

Six days ago, Ro Malabanan, an MMA fighter, made news when he made a “citizen’s arrest” in Manhattan. According to reports, he came upon the suspect, Samuel Frazier, as Frazier punched a construction worker. He had apparently assaulted six others before Malabanan arrived on the scene.

Malabanan checked to make sure the victim was okay, and then chased after the victim and tackled him. He pinned him to the game.

Citizen’s arrests certainly show up a great deal on popular television shows as well. Yet you should be very careful before assuming you should make one.
