BRAVE staff chased and captured an intruder after finding him in the cellar of a Huddersfield bar.
Several staff members at Revolution on Cross Church Street found the man as they were leaving work at 4.30am yesterday.
They shouted to colleagues, who were upstairs in the bar area.
Their colleagues ran downstairs and chased the man out of the building.
The six staff members covered the man's escape routes.
One of the staff tripped him up and two others pinned him to the ground until police arrived.
Russell Eggar was one of the staff who tackled the man.
He said: "It was quite dramatic, to be honest."
Russell, a journalism student at Huddersfield University, said the man had a crowbar and a sleeping bag in his possession when they captured him.
He added: "He threatened one of our staff with the crowbar.
"We didn't know how he'd got in, but we thought he might have used the crowbar somehow."
The man was arrested and is being questioned.
The man is not from the Huddersfield area.
Police are trying to find out why he was in the town and what he was doing in Revolution.
A Kirklees CID spokesman said: "It is good to have such spirit from the public.
"They assisted the police well."
