A Cordeaux Heights man has made a citizen’s arrest after he came home to discover three unknown teenage boys in his home.
The incident happened on Cordeaux Road about midday on Monday.
Lake Illawarra police inspector Andrew Koutsoufis said the man was able to detain one of the boys, before contacting police.
“Police arrived a short time later and took that person of interest into custody,” he said.
Police then conducted a search of the area and arrested a second boy.
They are yet to locate the third person involved in the suspected break and enter.
The two boys who were arrested were taken to Lake Illawarra Police Station where they are assisting police with their inquiries.
