As he turns and sees a one man being chased his instincts kicked in and tackled the runner.

It turns out the man had been making inappropriate comments to a teenage girl, whose father ended up chasing him..

Police have since charged him with public nuisance and stalking offences.

"You never know what [the job] will bring...Suit was ready for a dry-clean anyway."
