US HOUSING SECRETARY MAKES CITIZENS' ARREST
Timepieces flew as the secretary gave chase, down two alleys, across two streets and over lawns. A policeman joined the pursuit and grabbed one robber, while the other stopped after being cornered by Mr Cisneros.
"What kind of citizen or government leader would I be if I didn't try to help?" said the secretary, 47, who tries to ``work out and stay in shape''.
Mr Cisneros's exploit was reminiscent of the adventures of Ruud Lubbers, the former Dutch prime minister, who bagged a few car-radio thieves and other petty criminals in the Eighties.
